The riders did not stop and it was left to a passer-by to call an ambulance.

X-rays revealed the man suffered a broken hand which required a three-hour operation. He also suffered deep gashes and bruising to his legs.

PC Charlie Flatters, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Off road motorbikes driven in public places is a growing issue for residents in the Broxtowe area.

“On this occasion a pedestrian has been left with injuries following a hit and run, which is totally unacceptable.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101, quoting incident number 556 of July 5.
