A MALVERN quadbike rider has been given a warning by police.

Pickersleigh and Chase Safer Neighbourhood Team has responded after receiving a number of reports about "anti-social" quad bike riding in the Pickersleigh area of Malvern.

The person involved has now been identified and handed a Section 59 notice.

A section 59 notice is a warning that gets placed on the rider and their vehicle.

If they are seen driving the vehicle or any other vehicle in an anti-social manner within the next 12 months, the vehicle will be seized. 

"We understand this sort of behaviour effects the local community considerably," said PC Francesca Reynolds.

Anyone who witnesses such sort of anti-social behaviour is urged to report it to West Mercia Police by calling 101 or 999 in an emergency situation.
