A teenage boy has been charged in connection with anti-social motorcycle use in south-east Ipswich after officers spotted a scrambler bike being used illegally on April 14.

A 16-year-old boy from Ipswich was subsequently arrested and taken to Martlesham Police Investigation Centre for questioning.

He was later charged with obstructing a police officer in the execution of their duty, driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence and using a motor vehicle without insurance.

He was released on bail to appear at Ipswich Youth Court on Thursday, May 2.

Officers are continuing to investigate reports of anti-social use of motorcycles and scooters in south-east Ipswich, in particular in Orwell Country Park and the areas of Pipers Vale, Braziers Wood and Bridge Wood.
