Motorbike seized in Downham following residents' complaints


By Lynn News Reporter


A motorbike was seized by police in Downham last night after residents had previously said riders in the town were acting like it was "their own personal playground".

King's Lynn Police said the biker was stopped for speeding and performing wheelies.

A social media post by the police said: "Sadly for this rider, he didn't see the marked police vehicle sitting at the junction beside him. Second Section 59 warning issued and bike seized."

Section 59 allows the police to give drivers a warning if they are reported to have used their vehicle in a manner which causes "alarm, distress or annoyance".

It comes after one Downham resident told the Lynn News in October that she was almost hit by a moped on Railway Road after the biker rode onto the pavement when overtaking a car.

She said there is a group of young lads who circulate the town in a dangerous manner.

Another resident claimed the group "disregard" the one-way system and ride on pavements.
