Police were seen chasing a man on a motorcycle through Eldene yesterday morning.

At 11.40am a police vehicle chased the motorcycle into the Stubsmead car park before an officer pursued on foot after the man drove down an alleyway.

The man, wearing a grey hoodie and a black bandana drove at high speed down Eldene Drive before cutting through the Stubsmead car park and into an alley where the car could not follow.

An officer jumped out of the car and chased on foot whilst the remaining officer took the car around the roads.

A second police vehicle was also seen heading into Eldene a few minute later before a police helicopter joined the search an hour later.
