Tactical Police stopped this Range Rover outside St George's shopping centre in Preston on Sunday evening.

Section 59 of the 2002 Police Reform Act is a common tool now used by police constables and police community support officers (PCSOs) to seize vehicles being used in an anti-social manner.

- cause or likely to cause alarm, distress or annoyance to the public

- careless/inconsiderate driving

- prohibition of off-road vehicles

Vehicles are usually issued with a warning first. If an officer believes a warning has been given within the past 12 months they can seize the vehicle immediately.
