This is the dangerous moment that a nuisance biker rode on the pavement, on the wrong side of the road and without a helmet after posting his criminal exploits to TikTok. 

Kane Tilney regularly drove in Darlington with his dangerous biking - but has now been brought to justice.

He was arrested in February this year and charged with around 20 offences in total, including dangerous driving, driving without a licence, driving with no insurance, and failing to wear protective headgear.

Tilney, of Salisbury Terrace, Darlington, was also charged with assaulting an emergency worker and using threatening and abusive words or behaviour.

He admitted the offences and appeared at Teesside Crown Court on November 10, where he was sentenced to 12 months in prison, suspended for 24 months.

He was also disqualified from driving for two years, must complete 200 hours of unpaid work, and pay £100 compensation.

Police got wind of the offences after the 23-year-old filmed himself doing so and uploaded the videos to TikTok, providing police with a thorough record of his offending and what officers have called "a treasure trove of evidence" against him.
