The motorcyclist showed "no regard" for pedestrians after he was spotted riding on the footpath behind Coppull United Football Club today (May 18).

He then allegedly gave an "offensive gesture" to an off-duty police officer who approached the biker, the force said.

Officers have now released an image of the man - who is pictured riding a white and purple off-road motocross vehicle.
