A quad bike was seized by police as officers carried out additional patrols in a coastal town.

With extra police patrols carried out in Lowestoft over the weekend, officers investigated "an increased number" of reports of anti-social driving near to retail parks.

It led to two section 59 notices being issued to motorists along with a Traffic Offence Report (TOR) to another driver, while the quad bike was seized for not having any insurance.

A Lowestoft Police spokesman said: "Over the weekend we have had an increased number of reports regarding ASB-motor vehicles in Lowestoft, especially at the Retail Parks.

"Extra patrols have been carried out and two section 59 notices have been issued to drivers, one Traffic Offence Report regarding a modified exhaust (no rear silencer) has been issued and one quad bike was seized for no insurance.
