Police have released images of two bikers they want to speak to after a 74-year-old woman was injured in a hit-and-run in North Yorkshire.

She was walking on the B1257 Helmsley to Stokesley road on 29 May when she was hit by one of two motorcycles.

Police said the two bikers stopped briefly a short distance up the road before riding off.

Sgt Neil Campbell urged the bikers pictured to come forward "without further delay".

North Yorkshire Police said the crash happened near the Clay Bank car park at about 1720 BST.

The woman, from Warwickshire, was taken to hospital with shoulder and ankle injuries but has since been discharged.

Mr Campbell, of the road policing group, said the images of the bikers were taken from a police patrol car on the B1257 at about 1706 BST prior to the crash.

He said: "I am appealing to both motorcyclists to come forward without further delay as I believe that they may have vital information about the collision.

"I am also asking anybody, including members of the biking community, who recognises either of them to contact North Yorkshire Police straight away or pass information to Crimestoppers anonymously."
