On August 12, 2007, mechanic and Hell’s Angel, Gerry Tobin, was shot dead by a rival biker gang as he was riding his motorcycle on the M40 in Warwickshire. The shooting, on a busy Sunday afternoon, was carefully planned by members of the Outlaw’s biker gang and had roots in a turf war.
But the nature of the attack, brought a previously underground world screaming into the mainstream. Sky Correspondent, Darren Little, was dispatched to the murder scene, not knowing that it was the beginning of a story that would take more than two years to tell and culminate in a face-to-face meeting with one of Europe’s most notorious crime bosses.
