Off-road bike seized in Chorley as part of Operation Centurion

Officers from Chorley’s Neighbourhood Policing team have seized an off-road bike which was being driven in an anti-social manner.

Patrols deployed to the Harpers Lane area at around 4.40pm on Saturday, 9th March following multiple reports of vehicle nuisance and seized the bike under S165 of the Road Traffic Act.

The driver was also reported for driving without a licence, insurance and an MOT and driving without due care and attention.

Ollie Timperley, Neighbourhood Inspector for Chorley, said: “It’s great to see that a vehicle which has been causing nuisance to local residents has been taken off the streets and will no longer be able to cause an issue for those living in the area.

“We will continue to work diligently to target off-road motorbike riders who are breaking the law. If you have these kinds of issues in the area that you live, we urge you to tell us about them so that we can continue to work with our partner agencies to tackle it.”

Operation Centurion is a county-wide crackdown on anti-social behaviour, led by Lancashire Constabulary and backed by Police and Crime Commissioner Andrew Snowden, delivering his Fighting Crime Plan priority of getting tough on anti-social behaviour, with the support of partners.
