BBC Radio Humberside

Bikers who've made make a nuisance of themselves in the Orchard Park area of Hull have had their bikes confiscated by the council and police.

Six machines, including a so-called pit bike and a quad bike, have been taken away to be scrapped.

It's because green spaces and North More Lane (pictured) in particular have been blighted by bikers' anti-social behaviour.
