Police search for unregistered motorcyclist in Hawick

Police Scotland are looking for a man who rode an unregistered off-road motorbike through Hawick this morning.

At around 10:50am on 23 January the man rode through the town, causing other drivers to move out of the way.

The police would like 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.

"The actions of the rider on an unregistered off-road motorbike was incredibly dangerous as it resulted in other drivers having to take evasive action to get out the way.

I would appeal to the driver of the white van to get in touch, or anyone else in the area who witnessed this incident."
