AN operation to crack down on nuisance bikes and quads has seen five vehicles seized in its first 10 days.

Operation Thricelake began after residents of the Batley and Spen area raised concerns over anti social riding in the area.

Since it began on April 10 officers have issued five Section 59 warnings, seized five off road bikes and reported four people for summons.

Officers have asked anyone who has details of any anti social riders to contact them on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. People can also report online at
