West Midlands Police have released some helmet-cam footage of an off-road motorbike pursuit that happened last year.
Motorcycle cops from WMP’s Roads Policing Unit spotted the dangerous rider during the first April lockdown in 2020.
When officers signalled for the rider to stop, he led them on a 90 mph chase, during which the fleeing rider rode on the wrong side of the road and ran through red lights.
After 8 miles, the fleeing rider went off-road in a bid to try and escape.
He dumped his cloned bike and hid, but it was not long before a police dog sniffed him out.
Full story in the video.
