12th August 2007, Gerry Tobin a mechanic from south London, was returning from the Bulldog Bash bikers' festival when he was shot as he rode along at 90mph. He was shot in the head near Warwick services on the M40.
He was targeted by members of the rival Outlaws biker gang simply because he was a "fully patched", or senior, member of the Hell's Angels.


Several witnesses said a Rover car had pulled up alongside Mr.Tobin before two shots were fired. One hit Mr Tobin in the head, killing him instantly, while the second bullet struck his motorbike.
