Safer neighbourhood team officers conducted patrols in Icklingham, near Mildenhall, in response to reports of anti-social vehicle use on Sunday.

Police said a number of incidents were subsequently reported to have taken place on previous weekends in the area of Temple Bridge and West Street.

Police are expected to return in coming weeks.

A force spokesman said: “Patrols were carried out after officers received a report of off-road motorbikes being ridden in a dangerous manner and at excess speed along West Street.
