There have also been reports that off road bikes are being illegally ridden on the beach.

Lincolnshire Coast Neighbourhood Policing Inspector Colin Haigh said “Police are progressing enquiries to identify offenders who will be dealt with robustly and could have their vehicles seized.

“Off road bikes should only be used on land owned by the rider or on land where the landowner has given permission for the rider to use the bike on this land.

“Much of the beach is an area of special scientific interest and bye laws are in place to prevent unauthorised traffic.
