POLICE in Malvern have seized a modified push bike which had a petrol engine attached to it.

The rider was unable to ride it on the roads because the engine meant it was classed as a motor vehicle .

The cyclist needed to have a helmet, licence, tax and insurance – of which he had none.

It comes just days after Malvern Police put out a warning to riders not to modify bikes with electric engines and urged people to report any incidents of the illegal bikes being used in the area.
