Motorbike crushed by Thetford police
A motorbike that had irritated residents on a Thetford estate won’t be revving anymore after police put it through a crusher.
Seized on January 14, the pit bike was destroyed at Mellor Metals in Great Ellingham today after it had terrorised residents on the Abbey Estate.
The bike was ridden on a public green, caused noise by constant revving and created a safety issue for children playing, according to Norfolk Police.
It was taken away after the owner ignored a formal warning from police, leading them to seize the bike when he was caught using it again.
Pc Keith Kenny, of Thetford Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “We have received complaints from residents on the Abbey Estate about this type of anti-social behaviour, which affects the quality of life of the residents there, as well as being potentially dangerous.
“I hope that our actions in seizing and crushing this bike sends out a strong message to those individuals who would persist with this sort of behaviour that it will not be tolerated.”
