Watch three people ride on one bike across Exeter before police stop them

This is the moment three people clambered onto one bike and rode through a busy park in Exeter before being stopped by police. Police drone teams tracked the three bike riders just ten minutes after they were dispatched in the city.

The three people were caught riding through the city squeezed onto the back of a motorbike. None of the three riders had helmets on and were seen weaving around Ludwell Valley Park before swerving onto a main road on Tuesday evening.

Devon and Cornwall Roads Policing Team arrested the rider of the bike after police drones caught the three people riding through the park. Footage shows the crowded bike swerve past a person with a pram before speeding off onto a road full of parked cars.

Devon and Cornwall Police Drone Team reposted to social media praising the local police team for their work in locating and arresting the dangerous rider. It said: "Fantastic work by our Exeter team last night who were in the air 10 minutes after being dispatched.

"[Teams] were able to track these offenders riding 3-up on one bike with no helmets, leading to the rider being arrested…a great effort by everyone involved & another win for the drone!"

Insp. Dave Thubron added: "This is great. Proud of our team dealing with these irks yesterday. We will find you, We will stop you and we will be having you in handcuffs. Our drone team worked well past shift to deal with this and enabled swift action."
