WATCH: Dramatic police chase as motorcyclist races through streets at 80mph

This dramatic footage shows a dramatic police chase of a motorcyclist as he sped through residential streets at 80mph on an off-road bike.

The pursuit started with a police officer following a trio of motorcyclist before singling out 20-year-old Owen Guest - who went on to be handed a suspended sentence.

Guest, who was riding a Kawasaki 250CC, can be seen on the footage speeding through traffic and grassy areas in Tipton, West Midlands in September last year.

He added: “Great teamwork between officers on the ground and in the air helped us bring this to a safe conclusion.

“We know the misery that these kind of bikes cause when they are ridden illegally, and we’ll use all our resources to bring those who think it’s acceptable to justice.”
