Sky, 14 Jul 2021
Using the timeframe of the last 21 years, Sky News returns to some of this century's biggest news stories, using the focus of extraordinary personal stories, defined by these events.

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.
