It’s not known if that bike (pictured above) is the specific one police are asking for information about.
One local who didn’t want to be named said it was seen being “thrashed” around Green Lane, North Street, Shotton Lane and the 33 park for over an hour.
There have also been reports of youths riding mini moto and scrambler bikes around the busy Asda carpark, again no helmets being worn and the bikes had no number plates.
