Plain clothed police officers hunting anti-social riders who are causing misery to residents will continue to seize bikes in order to nip the problem in the bud.

Officers from the Hyndburn Neighbourhood policing team have been patrolling hot spot areas all this week, and on Sunday, the green moto-cross bike, pictured, was seized from Whalley Road in Clayton-le-Moors.

Police now say plain clothed and uniform officers will carry on targeting nuisance bikers on their daily patrols.
