Officers had followed the bike after it was spotted without a number plate and the passing without a helmet.

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."
