PSNI Dungannon said they will continue to take robust action following further reports of anti-social driving in and around the Dungannon area.

"Those involved in the nuisance on roads in and around the town will face prosecution," police said following a number of reports of incidents of reckless driving involving young drivers in recent weeks.

A spokesperson for the PSNI said: "As well as causing a nuisance to other road users and local residents, those involved are creating a danger for themselves.

"Police understand the detrimental effect this behaviour has on others and have, in the past, carried out proactive operations in the area, resulting in prosecutions and cars being taken off the road.

"Our message to those involved is that bad driving standards will not be tolerated.

"They should realise that if they are taken to court, their licences may be at risk and the loss of a licence could impact on their entire futures.

"We want these motorists also to realise the dangers they are causing to themselves and other road users.

"The last thing police want is to be knocking on doors of relatives following a fatal crash caused by someone showing off in a car."
