A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said: "One man is outstanding and we would urge him to speak with us about the use of his motorcycle which we now have possession of. "We know that off-road bikes, the nuisance, antisocial behaviour and serious crime linked to them are a concern for our communities. Officers’ message is clear- we will use all available tactics to stop them committing crime and causing fear and harm to our communities. With motorcycle-based criminality increasing, officers are using tactical contact to stop and apprehend those who are committing crime."

. These riders have the capability to cause serious or fatal harm to pedestrians, and other road users, as well as damaging infrastructure and farmers’ livelihoods. “We have also seen a rise in such vehicles being used to facilitate serious crime and need to be stopped. As always we continue to clamp down on those who use the road network, in whatever vehicle that may be in to commit criminality. We will be firm, we will be strong, as this type of behaviour will not be tolerated.” There has been a mixed reaction to the action taken by police since the footage was posted on social media. One person said: "How is it brave to knock kids off their bikes? Not sure the punishment fits the crime here as they could have been seriously hurt." A second person said: "I imagine they would make a run for it if you were plain-clothed in unmarked cars. Think this could have been handled better." But another said: "Need to see more of this. These riders have no consideration for the public and are a danger to themselves and others." A fourth person wrote: "Hahaa poetic justice" while another added: "That will bruise their egos. Top work, might make the little louts think twice in future."
