Greater Manchester Police's Leigh, Atherton and Hindley team said they took the vehicles on the Poets' estate in Leigh on Tuesday evening.

A spokesman said: "This was in response to further reports from the community about inconsiderate and anti-social behaviour involving off-road bikes, and the owner failing to take heed of a warning that we issued last week.

"It's unacceptable to ride off-road bikes on playing fields and at other locations in the community that pose a danger to the public. We are committed to taking action against those responsible.
