Police have jokingly asked an anti-social motorcyclist who fled from officers in Welham Green to collect his helmet after it was left at the scene.

Following reports of anti-social motorcycle riding in Great North Road, officers attended, with several motorcycles failing to stop when asked.

One left behind a helmet, with Welwyn Hatfield Police posting on their Facebook in jest that it was in "safe keeping" if they wanted to "come and collect it" from Hatfield Police Station.
