Leeds motorbike theft gang banned from touching vehicles

Eleven people have been banned from touching any motor vehicle in West Yorkshire after a spate of motorbike thefts in Leeds.

The five men and six youths were linked to a gang behind several incidents where bikes were stolen in the city centre.

One one occasion, CCTV footage showed how they managed to steal a secured motorcycle in 10 seconds.

They now face arrest if they break an injunction, valid for one year, which forbids them from touching any motor vehicle without the owner's permission.
