A Coventry member of a motorcycle gang has been found guilty of the murder of a Hells Angel.

Dean Taylor, 47, was found guilty by a unanimous verdict of killing biker Gerry Tobin, of Mottingham, south-east London, who was shot dead on the M40 motorway in Warwickshire in August last year.

The jury at Birmingham Crown Court, which is still considering the case against two other men accused of murder, also found Taylor guilty of possessing a shotgun.

The Crown alleged that Taylor, a divorcee who ran a motorcycle supplies outlet in Coventry, took part in “scouting” for a target prior to the fatal shooting.
