Police in Mansfield have been putting the brakes on off-road bikers.

Officers conducted patrols in 'hotspot' areas in Warsop, Oak Tree and Forest Town on Sunday following complaints.

Mansfield Police said: "The operation was planned after increased reports from local residents about the use of off-road vehicles on footpaths, byways and common land in the areas.

"As a result of the operation, bikes were dispersed from areas of Warsop and a bike seized in the area of Oak Tree Lane. Drugs were also recovered from an individual in the Oak Tree area who is being dealt with by officers.

"We will be revisiting the areas again over the coming weeks."
