POLICE in Littleport have warned mini-motorbike riders their machines will be confiscated if they continue to break the law.
Officers have already confiscated a bike in the village after the rider was found to be committing a number of road offences.
Mini-motorbikes can be legally ridden on private land as long as the rider has the permission of the land owner. But police have the power to seize mini-motorbikes, or any other such vehicle, being used illegally or anti-socially.
The owner must pay a fine to have the vehicle returned. Officers are also able to seize any vehicle being driven on a public road where the driver does not have insurance or a licence.

Pc David Bishop said: "There are a number of individuals who are causing problems by driving their mini-motorbikes and off-road bikes around the town, on footpaths and roads and I would remind these people that their actions are illegal.
"Anti-social driving is not only disruptive, but also dangerous and we will not tolerate this behaviour.
