FOUR bikes were seized following a police crackdown on nuisance riders in parks.

Two of the bikes were seized in Heath Road, Chadwell St mary  while another two were seized in Welland, East Tilbury, after the riders were caught illegally riding them in open park areas.

It is illegal to ride off-road bikes on common land, moorland, a footpath, bridleway, restricted byway or private land without the owner's permission.
