This is the adorable moment a young boy raced a real police car using his new toy police motorbike after Christmas.
In a video posted to Twitter by @PDBen1194, a Humberside Police dog handler, the four-year-old boy is seen testing out his new bike.
The police officer explained that her friend had bought her four-year-old son the toy motorbike as a Christmas present and had approached her to ‘race’ her son.

Both the video of the race and a picture showing the victorious boy alongside the police car were shared by the dog handler.
In the clip, the boy, wearing a safety helmet, is seen sitting on his new toy motorbike.
The person filming the video is heard cheering: ‘Go! Go!’
The four-year-old takes an early lead in the race and zooms off down the road.

The dog handler trails behind the young boy, driving at a slow and steady pace with the blue lights flashing, as if on a real police chase.
A caption accompanying the video read: ‘When your friends 4 year old gets a police motorbike for Christmas and asks you for a race! How could I say no to this super cute face #policeofficerinthemaking’
