A motorcyclist has had his trail bike seized by Sussex Police after he was stopped in Peacehaven.

The force said: “Police have struck at anti-social behaviour in Peacehaven with the seizure of a motorbike being ridden two-up across parkland and into Westview Close on Thursday afternoon (21 September).

“A traffic unit intervened and the trail bike’s owner, a man aged 40, has been reported for summons on suspicion of having no insurance and driving other than in accordance with his licence.

“His £1,800 trail bike has been confiscated until valid insurance can be produced.”

Eastbourne, Lewes and Wealden district police commander Chief Inspector Emma Brice said: “This is the sort of activity we have been targeting for a while and it is good to get a positive result.

“Officers will continue to take action against anti-social behaviour and anyone with information about such incidents is asked to contact police online or by calling 101.”
