TWO men have been issued with warning notices for anti-social driving in Letchworth GC.

Pc Quentin Lane and police community support officer Annie Penasa, who look after the Grange, had been working to identify the riders of an off road motorcycle and a quad bike following concerns from residents that they were being ridden in an anti-social manner.

They had a breakthrough with information recently received.

The two offenders, aged 19 and 26, have been issued with warning notices under Section 59 of the Police Reform Act 2002.

If they continue to use their vehicles in such a manner as to cause alarm, distress or annoyance to members of the public they face having the vehicles seized.

Sergeant Steve Oliphant from the Letchworth Neighbourhood Team said: "We understand the implications incidents like this can have on communities and I would like to reassure residents we will use every power possible to tackle anti-social behaviour.
