Officers believe the gang carried out seven attacks on April 17 and 18 in the Barking and Dagenham area.

We are appealing for any information as to the identity and whereabouts of this gang that are clearly targeting motorcyclists in the east London area.

They are often seen in pairs on mopeds or scooters and with a fire extinguisher to distract their victim with a view to stealing the motorbikes.

If anyone has recorded video footage of the group, please can they contact us.
