Police are looking for a suspect after they chased a stolen moped in Chislehurst.

Officers were called to a park near Victoria Road just before 7pm on Wednesday (August 9) after complaints about a person riding a moped.

The moped had been stolen from Marvels Lane in Sidcup a day earlier.

A police spokesman said: “Officers attended and an authorised pursuit was carried out.

“The moped was found abandoned a short while later in Shottery Close. The suspect was not located.”

The stolen vehicle was returned to the owner and no arrests have been made.

People in the area reported on social media how they spotted helicopters hovering as the police chase was happening.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101.
