The bike – which was found not to be road legal – was found in the back garden of a property in the Broadgate area along with a quad bike which police say was involved in incidents of anti-social behaviour in recent weeks.

Inspector Dave Byrne from Preston’s Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “It’s good to see that two vehicles causing nuisance have been taken off the roads and are no longer likely to cause issues for people going about their daily business.


“We will continue to tackle the issues and concerns raised to us by our residents and I would encourage people to report these sorts of incidents to us so that we can work to address them.”

Lancashire Police and Crime Commissioner Andrew Snowden said: “Anti-social behaviour is a blight on our communities and an issue that residents repeatedly raise with me, which is why I have made it a priority in my Fighting Crime Plan for Lancashire.

“I’m absolutely committed to cracking down on anti-social behaviour and I will continue to work closely with the Chief Constable to ensure the Constabulary has the resources needed to get tough on ASB and keep our communities safe.”
