LAST night (Friday) Cleveland Police received complaints from members of the public that off-road quad bikes were being ridden in a dangerous and reckless manner in the Jutland Road/Seaton Lane area of Hartlepool.

Officers from the Hartlepool Neighbourhood Policing Team and Integrated Response Team conducted patrols in the area eventually locating one of the offending vehicles and it’s male rider on Ormesby Road.

The quad bike was not road registered and the rider held no insurance and as a result the quad bike was seized and the man was reported for driving offences.
