‘BLOODBATH’ FEARS OVER BIKER BASH
THE biker festival which led to the murder of Hells Angel Gerry Tobin will go ahead this year despite police warnings it could end in a bloodbath between rival gangs.
The Bulldog Bash at Long Marston, Warks, is organised by the British wing of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club and has been held over the last 20 years.
This year's event, which starts on August 6, is expected to attract 15,000 people, with Motorhead booked to perform. But Warwickshire Police have repeatedly urged Stratford-upon-Avon council to ban it amid fears of violence between the Hells Angels and rivals the Outlaws.
Gerry Tobin, 35, was shot dead on the M40 after leaving the event two years ago. Last November seven members of the Outlaws were sentenced to life after being found guilty of his murder.
But the council refused to revoke the licence.
Assistant Chief Constable Bill Holland, of Warwickshire Police, said: "There has been serious, including fatal, violence connected to the event."
