Neighbourhood Policing Teams have stepped up their patrols of several Nottinghamshire villages, after residents complained about nuisance off-road bikes.
A Nottinghamshire Police spokesman said: "Due to numerous complaints from members of the public, your Neighbourhood Policing teams, supported by the county off-road motorcycle team have targeted areas of concern in relation to illegal off road bikes.
"Bilsthorpe, Ollerton, Boughton and Clipstone have been patrolled to name a few areas visited.
"We are out to catch those committing offences - not law abiding citizens!"
