Crackdown on nuisance mopeds

POLICE are warning moped riders they face losing their vehicles if they annoy Thornbury residents.

Officers have stopped a number of riders after complaints that bikes were being ridden on footpaths, back lanes and walkways.

Those that have been caught have been given formal notice that if they are found riding in an anti-social way again police will use powers to seize their bikes.

Police have also seized a stolen Honda bike fitted with number plates from another stolen vehicle in the town, after reports it had been ridden on lanes in the middle of town.
