Police are investigating reports of an off road motorbike being ridden dangerously on the seawall at Canvey.

Two bikes were seen riding at speed on the seawall at Seaview Road between 1pm and 1.15pm on June 9.

A family were walking in the opposite direction and one of the riders was reported to have kicked out at woman in the group as he passed.

Officers hope someone will be able to identify the rider pictured, who they want to speak to in connection with the incident.

PC Ian Risden said: “This kind of thoughtless and dangerous behaviour puts people at risk of being seriously hurt. It is just fortunate the victim was not hurt.

“We have been carrying out extensive enquiries into this incident, but we have also been carrying out patrols and gathering information to deal with people who are riding motorbikes dangerously and anti-socially in Canvey, Thundersley, Benfleet and Hadleigh.

“Information from the public is really important to help us identify and deal with offenders and I ask anyone with information that can help with our enquiries to get in touch.”
