Suzuki GSXR wheelie and busted by mounted police in Central London.
The Metropolitan Police Mounted Branch is the oldest part of the Metropolitan Police — formed in 1760. As the Bow Street Horse Patrol, the mounted branch was formed 38 years prior to the Thames Marine Police Force and 69 years prior to the formation of the Metropolitan Police. The primary purpose of the Bow Street Horse Patrol was to patrol the turnpikes approaching London.
Primary officer duties are ceremonial events, demonstrations and public order, sporting events, and the Metropolitan Police Activity Ride.
