POLICE were thanked by "happy residents" after seizing a nuisance quad-bike.

Officers from West Yorkshire Police's Steerside Enforcement Team were patrolling the Woodside area of Bradford South yesterday.

They were there as a result of calls from members of the public.

While there, officers spotted a quad being driven in an anti-social manner.

They stopped the vehicle and discovered the rider had already been warned about their behaviour a couple of weeks ago.

This meant the officers were allowed to seize the quad under Section 59 of the Police and Reform Act 2002.

Any individual caught driving in an anti-social way must first be given a warning by police before they can seize it, in most cases.

A spokesperson for West Yorkshire Police said yesterday: "Quad seized from Woodside, Bradford South, today, having been used in an anti-social manner and the rider having had a warning a couple of weeks ago already.

"Patrolling the area as a result of calls from the public.

"Happy residents thanking us was nice too."
