Speeding motorbikes driven at pedestrians in Vassals Park

POLICE have seized a motorbike after reports that riders were driving them at speed in Vassals Park.

The incident involved two small off-road bikes, known as mini motos, being ridden dangerously at the Oldbury Court Estate on Sunday at about 4.45pm.

A police spokesperson said: “Officers attended and a number of witnesses approached them to report the vehicles driving at speed and too close to pedestrians.

Two of the riders weren't wearing helmets but had their faces covered and one was carrying a child passenger.

“As the officers entered the car park they saw three people riding on two bikes. The solo rider abandoned their bike and jumped onto the other one. All three made off on the one bike, which was lost to sight.”


Police seized the abandoned bike, above, and are calling on anyone with information about the riders to call them on 101 or online, quoting incident number 5220 032 905.

One of the riders is described as white, in his late teens and wearing a dark-coloured tracksuit.

The spokesperson urged anyone who sees a similar incident happening to call 999.
