Police are appealing for witnesses to trace a male who was seen riding an unregistered off-road motorbike through the town on Friday morning.

The incident happened around 10.50am in Kenilworth Avenue, when the actions of the motorbike rider forced other drivers into taking evasive action to avoid a collision.

Police are particularly looking to speak to the driver of a white van who turned into Kenilworth Avenue from Eildon Road and had to stop to allow the motorcycle to pass.

PC Alan Hastings said: “The actions of the rider were incredibly dangerous.”

Anyone with information should contact Police Scotland on 101.
