The warning comes after a landlord in Telford was informed of his tenant's conduct after their off-road bike was seized.

West Mercia Police said as part of Operation Spree, officers will be informing landlords of incidents where tenants, their family and visitors have caused anti-social behaviour.

A spokesperson said: "Riding an off-road bike causes alarm, distress or annoyance and could constitute a breach of tenancy. All landlords can take action against tenants causing anti-social behaviour.

"If after relevant intervention the behaviour doesn’t cease, landlords have the power to evict tenants behaving anti-socially."

Officers have asked if people know anyone riding off-road bikes or where they ride and store the bikes they should email
