POLICE are looking to track down around 20 motorcyclists who fled from officers after they were confronted at the weekend.

Hampshire police was alerted to a gang of off-road motorcyclists in Lordswood Lane, Chilworth, on Sunday, April 18.

The force received reports from people who did not feel safe with the group around, according to a post on Facebook from Test Valley Cops.

After the suspects were confronted, they ran away but forgot their rucksacks containing mobile phones, car keys and other belongings.

Officers are now offering to exchange the rucksacks for the group's details, so police can catch up with the gang, the post adds.

Two of the rucksacks have already been returned to the owners.
