Stolen bikes seized

POLICE have seized five stolen bikes during an operation to crack down on anti-social riding.

Members of the Kingswood and Staple Hill neighbourhood teams and the force’s violence reduction unit took part in the “proactive” local operation on October 4. The team said: “We urge the public to contact us if you see any motorbikes which look abandoned or have ignition damage. Please ensure you aware of the laws regarding e-scooters before riding on public land.”

Anyone who wants to report an issue can call 101, visit the force website at or call 999 if a crime is in progress or people are at risk.
