Comical footage has been released of the moment a pair of moped riders crashed into the pavement while trying to flee from police.
Onboard dash-cam from inside a police car captured the bungled getaway which unfolded in Chaddesden, Derbyshire, at about 10pm on New Year’s Day.
Officers had followed the bike after it was spotted without a number plate and the passing without a helmet.
However, the pair tried to evade police - but completely fluffed the escape.
After pulling a wheelie, they crashed into a kerb and tumbled onto the floor.
The pair, did, however manage to escape on foot and are now being sought by Derbyshire Police.
In a tweet, the force's roads policing unit wrote: "Imagine the conversation went something like this ‘Quick bruv, let me ride, I’ll get us away from the bizzies’.
"Imbeciles. Unfortunately quicker on their feet than us but bike #Seized."
