Published: 26 November 2008

A third man has been found guilty of murdering Hells Angel Gerry Tobin as he rode back from last year’s Bulldog Bash.

Malcolm Bull, 53, of Milton Keynes, was convicted by jury yesterday at Birmingham crown court. He was also convicted of a firearms offence.

Simon Turner, 41, from Nuneaton, and Dane Garside, 42, from Coventry, were found guilty of murder and firearms offences on Monday

A fourth man, Sean Creighton, 44, pleaded guilty to murder at an earlier hearing.
The jury has yet to return verdicts on four other defendants, all of whom have denied murder and firearms offences.

Tobin, 35, was killed by a single bullet to the back of the neck on August 12 last year while riding between junctions 12 and 13 of the M40 southbound carriageway.

He had attended the Bulldog Bash at Long Marston Airfield near Stratford.

A second bullet struck his motorcycle, a Harley-Davidson FXSTB Night Train.

The Hells Angel was from Canada but had spent the last 10 years in the UK. He lived in south London, where he worked as a mechanic for Warr’s Harley-Davidson.
