They were told that if they were seen offending again, the bike would be seized and they would be prosecuted for road traffic offences.

“The illegal use of motor vehicles, including e-scooters, will not be tolerated,” the Facebook post said.

“Reckless and dangerous driving imposes significant risk on themselves, members of public and other road users."
