A MINI-motorbike has been crushed by Cambridgeshire Police as a warning to riders that it is illegal to use them on public roads and paths and they are a nuisance.
The bike was crushed at Burton's Car Disposal in Old Weston after police received 15 complaints in four weeks from residents in Eynesbury that the mini motorbikes were being driven in an anti-social manner on the village's roads.
However, the problem also exists elsewhere in the district with Huntingdonshire Safety Partnership recording 20 similar complaints in October.
Sgt Dave Griffin, said: "We have already seized two mini-motorbikes that were being driven illegally in Eynesbury, and we will make full use of the powers available to us to crack down on those who are causing problems for residents.
