Officers say they have received reports of an unregistered bike being ridden “in an anti-social manner” in the Chigwell and Loughton areas.

Pc Paul Walker said: “Members of the public have reported seeing it being ridden on pavements, driving through red traffic lights on crossings and at road junctions and doing wheelies in traffic.

“Officers have tried to stop this motorcycle on a number of occasions but so far without success and we are concerned for the safety of both the rider and members of the public.

“I appreciate these are not the clearest images but I hope someone will recognise the man, or the bike itself, which will help us with our enquiries.”
