Police in Blakenall cracked down on the bikers after the issue "plagued" residents in the area for years.

Officers have tried to stop them but previous attempts have failed – leading to residents feeling disillusioned.

But now they have seized bikes and issued community protection warnings to prevent further issues.

A spokesman for the team said: "Working with our traffic officers and colleagues in the local authority, including housing and the community protection and greening teams, they put barriers around the track where people were using their off-road bikes.

"While we’re aware that there are still issues in the area, our work so far has made Blakenall a better and safer place."
