Seven members of the Outlaws motorcycle gang have been jailed for life for murdering Hell's Angel Gerry Tobin in Warwickshire.

The entire South Warwickshire chapter of the Outlaws was sentenced at Birmingham Crown Court after being convicted of shooting Mr Tobin as he rode along the M40 on August 12 last year.

Two shots were fired at the 35-year-old biker from two different handguns as he returned to his south-east London home from the Bulldog Bash biker festival in Long Marston, near Stratford-upon-Avon.

During the seven weeks of evidence, the jury was told that the mechanic was targeted by the rival gang simply because he was a "fully-patched" Hells Angel.

Simon Turner, 41, from Nuneaton, Warwickshire, was given a minimum term of 30 years for murder and two firearms offences.
Coventry man Dane Garside, 42, received a minimum 27 years for the same charges.

Sean Creighton, 44, from Coventry, will spend a minimum of 28 years and six months in prison after pleading guilty to murder and two firearms charges.

Malcolm Bull, 53, from Milton Keynes, was sentenced to a minimum of 25 years in prison for murder and possessing a shotgun. Dean Taylor, 47, from Coventry, will spend at least 30 years in prison for the same charges. Karl Garside, 45, from Coventry, was given at least 26 years and Ian Cameron, 46, also from Coventry, received at least 25 years for murder.
