PC Mark Anstey, from the Ampthill Community Policing team said: “The anti-social behaviour displayed at this event was very detrimental to residents and business in the local area.

“The CPNWs have been issued with the explicit instruction that the owners of the vehicles must not attend, arrange, or promote any unauthorised car meets in the future otherwise further action can be taken against them. We will carry out more stringent action if this behaviour continues. The safety of the community is our priority.”
