Police have been cracking down on anti-social behaviour on the roads of York.

And as a result four teenagers have been charged with a variety of offences.

Acting on community concerns, North Yorkshire Police’s Operation Casbia has seen motorbikes and mopeds seized, and home visits made to parents of children found behaving anti-socially in the city.

Now, four people will appear in court in connection with road traffic offences linked to the operation.
