A man who rode a moped while standing up on its seat in Essex is being hunted by police.

An image has been issued of the rider who was at an "unauthorised motorbike meet" at which a crash in Corringham left a woman needing her leg amputated.

Det Insp Scott Egerton, of Essex Police, said the crashed bike was seen being loaded into a van with "Essex Vehicle Hire" on the side.

"This was a really serious crash at an unauthorised motorbike meet," he said.

"We need to identify those people pictured, locate them and speak to them. I also want to locate the bike and the van.

"A number of people at this event were wearing black hooded tops with a white logo on the back. I am keen to identify what that logo is, what it refers to, and if it identifies a group they belong to."
