It follows a spate of anti-social behaviour (ASB) and nuisance riders on the land, along the Leeds and Bradford Border in Ravenscliffe Woods.

Officers have received several reports of nuisance quad bikes and motorbikes in recent months and caught two riders on the fields in March.

The closure order makes it illegal for anyone to enter the land, except those with the permission of the landowner, farmer or emergency workers.
