A motor scooter was found burned out in a popular beauty spot this morning.

Photographer John Hercock was making his way home through Harrow Lodge Park, Hornchurch Road, Hornchurch, when he came across council workers cleaning up the remnants.

Mr Hercock said he was told that the bike was the second found in the park that week.

“People are nicking bikes to do the drive-by phone and bag robberies,” he said.

“It’s disgusting. It’s severely damaged the park bench. It will have to be replaced.”
