Motorbike taken from reckless rider in Dagenham park
A MOTORCYCLE being ridden illegally in Beam Valley Country Park was seized by police.
It was confiscated under Operation Reclaim by Sgt James Browning of the Safer Parks team.
The team increased patrols of Beam Valley after residents, park users and Village Ward councillor Lee Waker raised concerns about improper use of the park.
The bike was being ridden without insurance and in a dangerous manner, in a park that was being used by dog walkers and families.
“Safer Parks will maintain zero tolerance to the few who are spoiling the use of the parks for the many,” said Sgt Browning.
