Officers from Operation Matrix - West Yorkshire Police’s specialist off-road motorbike team - seized the bike from its owner after it was seen being ridden in the area on Wednesday.

The seizure is part of a clampdown by police after a large amount of complaints about youths riding vehicles irresponsibly across the district.
