Bikers raise Hell at 50yr Brit summit
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.”
