The second boy is also described as mid to late teens, wearing a white helmet, blue jacket, grey jogging bottoms and dark footwear. He was riding a black and white motorcycle.

Constable Steven Black, of Kirkcaldy Police Station, said: “This was highly irresponsible and although it might’ve seemed like a bit of fun at the time, someone could’ve been hurt and this behaviour won’t be tolerated in our community.

“Our activity around this is part of Operation Fireblade, where we are targeting the illegal use of motorbikes and quad bikes.

“If anyone recognises the description of these boys, or perhaps saw them around the time of the incident in a nearby area, please contact us.”

Those with any information should contact 101.
