Videos of runner boys driving at breakneck speeds, drifting dangerously at roundabouts and near misses have been posted in a series of Tiktok clips. BirminghamLive has unearthed the secret world of underground street racing and illicit car cruiser events in the region.

Despite the High Court injunction – which outlawed these dangerous stunts – a series of reckless car enthusiasts took to the streets and filmed their antics for approval online.

In the flashy social media clips, people can be seen lining the roads as runner boys perform dangerous stunts and flout the court order.

Here are some of the clips that have been hosted online over the past six months:

What happens if they are caught?

Anyone caught flouting the injunction, which was extended until 2021, could be arrested, have their car crushed, fined or sentenced to two years in prison.

Chief Superintendent Ian Green, responsible for Operation Hercules, said: “There is a tremendous amount of work going on to tackle this problem as we know that many people are concerned about antisocial and dangerous activity.

“We are conducting regular operations across the force in response to concerns raised by communities. These operations are also now supported by police drone pilots who collect information on offenders.

“It’s all part of our continued commitment to listen to what our communities tell us about their concerns and to take action against offenders.

“Operations like this should be a stern warning to any motorist who thinks they can drive in an unsafe or antisocial manner on our roads. We will not tolerate this behavior, especially during the current pandemic. We are determined to bring offenders to justice and keep our roads safe. ”
