The motorbike, a Ducati valued at £8,000, was stolen from Dingle Road in Wombourne at around 11.30pm on Friday.

Neighbourhood officers from South Staffordshire Police were able to search for the vehicle using information from a tracker fitted to the vehicle, which pointed them towards the Great Barr area.
