A car has been seized as incidents of drifting and racing have continued in Hemel Hempstead.

Officers of Hertfordshire police responded to reports of "vehicles doing burn-outs and donuts" in the vicinity of Maylands Avenue, on Friday (July 21).

One driver was given a warning, while another - who had already received one - had his vehicle seized.


The seized vehicle will cost the owner £150, plus £20 for each day that it spends in storage.

Warning notices have previously been handed out for anti-social driving in the town, and a warning statement was released after cars were seen racing in the car park for Gadebridge Park.
