POLICE seized a motorbike in Potterne as they cracked down on off-road riders behaving badly.

A 21-year-old man was stopped on a motorcycle on Sunday, in Coxhill Lane, and his bike was seized. He was also issued with a fixed penalty notice.

Wiltshire Police said the motorcycle was taken away because it was suspected that there was no insurance in place for the vehicle.

If the owner does not provide suitable documentation for it being roadworthy, the force will seek to dispose of it.
