Police in Hampshire have shared a video of e-scooters and e-motorcycles being crushed as part of a crackdown on anti-social behaviour.

In the footage, Inspector Andy Tester explains vehicles found to have been used for offending will be destroyed.

The crackdown, which forms part of Operation Crush, follows a "steady increase" in the popularity of privately owned, powered, two-wheel vehicles which has led to a rise in them being used for crime.

It will target those using the vehicles illegally, those persistently involved in anti-social behaviour and those putting themselves and others at risk. 

Inspector Tester said: "We hope that this action shows our communities that we have listened to their concerns about the rising use of these e-scooters and e-motorcycles being ridden dangerously or being used to carry out crime and anti-social behaviour."
