A passerby captured a high-speed police chase on his phone.
Dumper driver Shy Johnson filmed the moment police officers tried to stop a nuisance biker in Bulwell Forest on Monday (May 4).
The biker looked close to dodging the pursuit but got stuck on a railing at the start of a footpath near Northern Court.
Shy, 27, from Gedling, said: “I was getting a new window screen, heard the sirens and the bike, come outside and saw it all.”
In a Facebook post on the Sherwood Police: Sherwood, Carrington and Edwards Lane
on Monday group, an officer wrote: “Another nuisance off road bike removed from the streets of Notts following a tip off by a members of the public around Bestwood/ Bulwell Forest.
Another nuisance off road bike removed from the streets of Notts following a tip off by a members of the public around…
“Officers illuminated the police vehicle to advise the rider that he had forgotten his helmet, L plates and VRM plate but being keen to socially distance himself from us the rider turned left and shot off upto the top of Northern Court.
“Initially thinking they had lost all chances of stopping the rider as he decided to drive up a pedestrian walkway the rider found himself stuck between the metal chicanes.
“Unable to move forward or backwards on the bike and unable to get off quick enough to run away, the rider found himself detained and his newly purchased bike off to the crusher.”
He added: “I was surprised to see him get caught. As normally they get away!
“I’d say officers were lucky the rider got stuck.”
