Police in Derbyshire are trying to track down a man who was seen cycling along a busy road with a child on his shoulders. 

A local Inspector said he was “amazed” by the footage that was captured by a passer-by along the Tamworth Road. 

He insisted the rider of the bike get in touch for advice on cycling safety. 

“Clearly this is very dangerous,” he said.

“There is a section of law that covers dangerous cycling where there is a risk of injury and there is a risk of injury to the child.”

“It would only take a pothole or a gust of wind or a close-moving vehicle and it’s an accident waiting to happen.”

The photographer who caught the footage has told press that he wants to remain unnamed, but said he could not believe what he saw. 

Anyone with information has been asked to contact the Police.
