North Yorkshire Police

Two men have been arrested after police ‘stung’ the tyres of the suspected stolen quad bike they were riding.

At about 2am this morning, Thursday 11 November 2021, a vigilant member of the public reported suspicious activity involving men on a quad bike on land near Wheldrake.

North Yorkshire Police patrols responded immediately, and the NPAS police helicopter flew overhead to help locate the vehicle.

As the quad bike left a field and joined a road, police successfully deployed a stinger device, which deflated its tyres. The two riders were arrested.
