Hertfordshire police have issued a warning to off-road bikers causing damage to an open field in Bricket Wood.

Yesterday (Tuesday, March 26), officers handed a Section 59 to a rider, who used his van to transport bikes to the field off Lye Lane on Saturday (March 23).

The Section 59 is a marker placed on a person and a vehicle relating to antisocial driving behaviour.

If the offender repeats the crime within 12 months, Hertfordshire police will be able to seize vehicles under the police reform act.

A spokesperson for Hertfordshire Constabulary said: "St Albans Neighbourhood Policing Team often receive calls regarding off road bikes at the Lye Lane, Bricket Wood open field location.


"This piece of land is private property and no persons have permission to use off road bikes/vehicles here.

"This causes damage to the land and excessive noise for local residents.

"Please reframe from using this location for off-roading. Riders/drivers will be dealt with robustly."
