It’s be­lieved to be the fastest EVER speed by which a mo­tor­cy­clist has been con­victed in this coun­try – the phone footage shows Adam Cam­pion get­ting pretty close to the dou­ble tonne on a stolen bike.

With­out both­er­ing his brain cells too much, the scrote, rid­ing some­one else’s pride and joy, then took the footage and up­loaded it to a lap­top, which po­lice found when they ex­e­cuted a war­rant on his home in Septem­ber 2016.

As a re­sult of the huge speed on a pub­lic road and other of­fences filmed by oth­ers which showed Cam­pion, 26, of Huck­nall, Notts, wheel­ieing on pub­lic roads, the bum­bling id­iot was jailed for 21 months at Not­ting­ham Crown Court on Wed­nes­day af­ter ad­mit­ting five counts of dan­ger­ous driv­ing. He also pleaded guilty to as­sist­ing an of­fender with the re­ten­tion of stolen goods.

The court was told how Cam­pion’s lap­top was seized, which con­tained hun­dreds of videos and im­ages of mo­tor­cy­cles be­ing rid­den reck­lessly.

De­tec­tives used foren­sic fa­cial recog­ni­tion which iden­ti­fied Cam­pion as the rider – de­spite him wear­ing a crash hel­met at times.

In one of the most damn­ing videos, Cam­pion can be seen rid­ing the bike one handed while hold­ing his mo­bile phone in his left hand and tak­ing the Yamaha R1 to an in­di­cated 189mph.

Notts Po­lice In­spec­tor Glenn Long­den said: “The il­le­gal and dan­ger­ous use of mo­tor­cy­cles is a mas­sive is­sue to our com­mu­ni­ties and al­though this in­ves­ti­ga­tion was im­mensely com­plex and time con­sum­ing, the re­sult in court has been sat­is­fy­ing.”
