Three illegal e-scooters have been seized by police in a Norfolk coastal town.
Officers in Great Yarmouth were called into action on Wednesday evening.
Great Yarmouth Borough Council is currently running a "Ginger" rental scheme which can only be used in the town's roads or cycle paths within the trial zone.
Only the '"Ginger" branded scooters can legally be used in Great Yarmouth.
Privately owned e-scooters are only legal to use on private land with Norfolk Police saying riders cannot get insurance to use these in public spaces.
