Bulldog bash security ‘over the top’ claim organisers

Author: By Katie Dawson, Press Association

The Hell’s Angels said its Bulldog Bash event was the “safest show in Europe”
and claimed Warwickshire police force was discriminating against the biker
community by enforcing such strict security.

The force has been trying to get the four-day festival, which starts tomorrow
at Long Marston Airfield near Stratford-upon-Avon, banned following the
death of mechanic Gerry Tobin, who was shot as he rode home along the M40 in
2007.

A huge policing operation will take place again this year, which will include
stop-and-searches and automatic number plate recognition on roads leading up
to the site.

Organiser John Britt, also known as Bilbo, said: “I think they (the police)
are being totally over the top again.

“This is the safest show in Europe. We’ve never had any problems at all.

“It’s total overkill by the police and I think it’s discrimination.”
