Land owners are being forced to take action to combat anti-social behaviour by car drivers around Silk Willoughby.

Since the summer Sleaford Police have been warning irresponsible drivers to stop doing ‘doughnuts’ on patches of land at Silk Willoughby.

Police have been called on numerous occasions after cars were doing ‘doughnut’ skids in the car park of Birdies golf course on London Road and on concrete areas near barns and sugar beet pads on Gorse Lane, Silk Willoughby.

Land owners have now erected barrier gates to combat fly tipping and the anti-social car drivers on the concreted areas.

A Sleaford police spokesman said: “These are private property please stay away from here.”

If caught, drivers can be officially warned or even have their vehicles seized.
