Motocross rider Dan Whitby first to jump Bournemouth Pier

A freestyle motocross rider has become the first person to jump over Bournemouth Pier on a motorcycle.

Dan Whitby, from Norfolk, completed the stunt on Sunday, on the second day of the first Bournemouth Wheels Festival.

The jump had been due to take place on Saturday but rain and high winds forced the FMX display team to call it off.

The free festival was organised by Bournemouth Borough Council, which is hoping to build on the success of its annual Air Festival, held in August, which attracts more than a million people each year.
