A learner motorcyclist had their bike seized after police found they had allegedly been riding with no rear brake pads.

The Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Police Team tweeted a picture of the vehicle this morning.

Officers said the bike had been stopped because its number plate was obscured and discovered the rider had only a provisional licence and was not displaying L-plates.

“Worse still, the rear brake didn’t have any brake pads in it,” the team tweeted.

“Rider reported and bike prohibited.”
