Bik­ers raise Hell at 50yr Brit sum­mit

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News - BY EL­LIE CULLEN

AT least 34 peo­ple were ar­rested as thou­sands of Hells An­gels marked the club’s 50th UK an­niver­sary.

Po­lice said most were held on sus­pi­cion of drugs and weapons of­fences, and 12 – in­clud­ing five Ger­man and three Hun­gar­ian bik­ers – had been dealt with in court.

The three-day event saw rid­ers from across Europe take part in a “ride-out” from Pease Pot­tage, near Craw­ley, West Sus­sex, to Brighton yes­ter­day.

Po­lice were granted stop and search pow­ers within a des­ig­nated area across Sur­rey and Sus­sex in an at­tempt to min­imise the risk of trou­ble.

Sur­rey As­sis­tant Chief Con­sta­ble Nev Kemp said: “We have been very clear we will not tol­er­ate crim­i­nal be­hav­iour.”
