THIS is the extraordinary moment police chase jetskis in a James Bond-style pursuit on the River Thames.

Astonishing footage shows cops speeding behind the four vehicles as they raced past the Greenwich Pensinsula towards Central London on Friday evening.

They then hurtle at high speeds past the 02 Arena where Pierce Brosnan's 007 concluded one of the most memorable Bond boat chases in The World Is Not Enough.

Another clip showed the jetskis speeding west of Canary Wharf after evading police boats around the Isle of Dogs.

Police responded to reports that vessels were "being driven at speed" through the capital but were forced to let the jetskiiers escape.

A Met Police spokesman said: "Police were called at approximately 18:29 on Friday, 03 August to reports of four jet skis driving at speed down the River Thames.

Police were forced to abort their mission due to safety reasons

Police were forced to abort their mission due to safety reasons "Officers from the Met’s Marine Policing Unit (MPU) pursued all four jet skis.

"The jet skis were approaching central London and the MPU were able to make them change their course.

"Following this the decision was taken to no longer pursue the jet skis for safety reasons."

Personal Water Craft (PWC) such as jetskis are legal anywhere on the Thames, but a strict code of conduct operates where crafts are not supposed to exceed speeds of 10mph within 200m of a shoreline.
