The PSNI have seized a car following an incident during which death drivers took over a west Belfast street performing dangerous stunts.

Officers received a report from residents at around 10.30pm on Thursday that death drivings were terrorising residents in Servia Street.

"We arrived in 90 seconds of the report and observed a dark BMW performing hand-brake turns and other dangerous manoeuvres in the residential streets," an officer revealed on the PSNI West Belfast Facebook page.

"On seeing us the vehicle accelerated away and the crowd of on lookers scattered.

"The vehicle was pursued and eventually abandoned in Lisvarna Heights where it crashed into pedestrian bollards.

"The 2 knuckle draggers onboard ran away leaving the vehicle leaking oil. They were last seen skulking into the alleyways towards Ross Road."

The vehicle was seized by police and an investigation into the incident is now underway.

The police officers also seized two other vehicles and a stolen bike, adding they have active lines of enquiry ongoing into all investigations.

Later that evening there was an anti-social behaviour incident in the Lisvarna Heights areas.

The PSNI has warned it has increased its patrols to tackle anti-social behaviour.

"We know of anti social behaviour in this area at all times of the day. We are also aware of the individuals involved and have increased our patrols on the area," an officer posted on the PSNI West Belfast Facebook pafe.

"If you are affected, call us or call down to the Station and ask to speak with me in person about how together we can make your community safer. Don't suffer in silence."
