Wheel spinning and loud music prompted police to seize a car in Dereham over the weekend.

The silver Honda Civic in Norwich Street was taken by police at around 9.30pm on Saturday, July 28.

Reports of young drivers playing loud music and wheel spinning were made to officers.

Anti-social use of vehicles is a priority for the town’s safer neighbourhood team.

Officers are focussing on areas such as Crown Road, the town centre and various car parks.

PCSO Paul Bailey said: “We’re sending out a clear warning that those individuals who choose to use their vehicles inappropriately will have to deal with the consequences.

“This behaviour will not be tolerated. Officers are conducting targeted patrols at key times to identify offenders and deal with them as necessary.”

  • Not before time. There are far too many doing this. Its intimidating and puts you off going to Dereham.

  • Great news, that will quieten at least one of them down for the foreseeable future. Perhaps this will serve as a warning to others.

  • Amen, to that! Still I believe that if more than one individual report a vehicle for reckless driving in a short space of time. Then the boys in blue pay a visit. Although you will have to ring it in as the local station seems to be shut everytime I go there!!!

  • Perhaps police could come to Drewray Drive Taverham and confiscate the silver corsa and old type Polo which constantly drive up this 30mph road in excess of 70 mph. These boy racers appear to be answerable to no-one.
