Police noted on social media that the three-wheeler had been causing severe nuisance to residents surrounding the park, labelling the vehicle as a "monstrosity".

On Facebook, Preston Police said: "Numerous reports over the last few days painted the picture of this noisy hybrid contraption being driven across the peaceful fields of Ribbleton Park, surrounding roads and footpaths, causing severe nuisance to nearby residents and dog walkers.

"Needless to say, the vehicle is not registered to be driven on roads, never mind insurance and is dangerous even for the riders.

"The manner it was being driven in was putting pedestrians at risk, who should be able to enjoy a stroll in the park without nearly being mowed down."

The trike was seized in Ribbleton Park on Friday night (February 16).

"The sleek and elegant design even included some articulate Pro-Police markings," a police spokesman said.
