POLICE have put the brakes on a bumbling off-road biker after seizing his bike.

PCSOs Natalie Butterfield and Jo Abel were patrolling in Warren Lane, Bessacarr, when two men on bikes approached them to go onto the cycle path.

However, one of the motorcyclists stalled his machine allowing the duo to nab him. The bike was seized after officers discovered he had already received a warning for riding illegally. The man will now have to pay £170 to the bike back.

PCSO Butterfield said: “We are continuing to crackdown on people riding their off-road bikes on the streets.

“We want to send a clear message out that riding off-road bikes in this manner is illegal and potentially very dangerous. We will seize bikes being ridden in this manner.”
