During the chase, the rider – who is wearing a helmet but not displaying a licence plate – takes officers on a dangerous run-around and when it appears the bike is running out of fuel, he dumps it and runs for cover into a local estate.

The footage shows him travelling on the wrong side of the road, going through red traffic lights, and riding up pavements.

PC Craig Dawes, one of two officers in pursuit, is seen trying to slow the vehicle down – although the rider has other intentions and does a U-turn in an attempt to evade police.

He said: “Sometimes when vehicle’s don’t display number plates is because they’re stolen; it may be an unregistered off-road bike; and three, it may be a road legal bike but because the manner of driving, they’re speeding, they take the plates off.

"His idea of what that bike can actually do is far more than the bike’s capabilities.

"My intentions are, if I can safely, to block it in with a car that is in front of it. If he sees us at the side of him he’s going to think the game’s up here, I’ll pull over.

"It’s just trying to force him into that stop but doing it safely.”

As the chase continues, the footage fades leaving viewers to ponder how it all ends.

Traffic Cops continues weekly on Monday’s at 8pm on Channel 5.
