A stolen motorbike was recovered in Ravensdale.

The team said checks revealed it was stolen and it has since been reunited with its owner.

A team spokesman said: “The Mansfield Reacher Team would like to remind drivers/riders that you need the appropriate licence and to please ensure your vehicle is legal with adequate insurance, tax, MoT and is not stolen.

“Failure to do so will result in your vehicle being seized until it is roadworthy and you having to pay the release fees.”
