Officers have made tackling such behaviour a priority in the north of the town, where residents have consistently reported bikers causing a nuisance.

The bike was confiscated on Friday afternoon by Pc Davey Rawlings and PCSO Will Berridge, of the Melton and Rutland Neighbourhood Policing Area team.

PCSO Berridge said: “Scrambler bikes such as these have been causing issues in and around Melton over the recent months after concerns were raised from calls on 101, face to face interactions and social media messages.
