    Two dead horses, both with ropes tied around their feet, have been discovered at a farm on the outskirts of York.

    Prosecuting those involved in riding off-road bikes anti-socially is a priority, according to West Yorkshire Police.

    Among the seizures made in 2018 so far include an off-road bike seized from Normanton on 5 January and a machine seized from its rider in Agbrigg on 13 January after it was found to be uninsured.

    Officers also served a South Elmsall rider with three penalty points and a £300 fine after he pulled a wheelie in front of them on a moped.
