Motorists were caught drink-driving, driving without insurance and owning motorbikes "with excessively loud exhausts" during a police crackdown.

Officers in Wealden have been conducting patrols targeting antisocial drivers in the area.

Between September and December last year they set up 11 speed and antisocial driving check points, stopping 58 drivers over "advisory guidance/warnings for various road traffic matters".

Three vehicles were seized for being driven with no insurance, two people were arrested for drink-driving, two people were arrested for "other crime matters" and two Traffic Offence Reports were issued to motorbike riders "with excessively loud exhausts".

Police Sergeant Kara Tombling said: "Our road safety activity will continue to visit all parts of the district.

"The results achieved in the four months before Christmas have been a good start and we will continue to build on this approach.

"Importantly, we are speaking regularly to our Town and Parish Councils to share information about hotspot locations and move our deployments accordingly."

Councillor Philip Lunn, Wealden Cabinet member for community and public health, praised the work of community volunteers in supporting police in their mission to crack down on antisocial drivers.

He said: "Community speed watch volunteers, working closely with Wealden Police, continue to play an important role in Wealden helping to reduce road accidents and save lives.

"We welcome these results which are helping to reduce speeding and antisocial driving - issues of concern to many communities across Wealden."
