Police reported over the weekend that they had seized a motorbike under section 59 of the Police Reform Act. The rider had been given a warning in June 2023 due to their driving on Preston Road in Longridge.

Almost 12 months later, the driver repeated the behaviour and police seized the vehicle as a result.
