Biker jailed for 'ridiculous' 100mph ride in Sussex

A biker has been jailed for two years for what police called "the most outrageous" case of dangerous driving "ever seen in Sussex."

A police helicopter tracked Gavin Collett, 32, of Bramber Road, Broadwater speeding at more than 100mph along the A24 near Findon.

He crashed on the A27 near Worthing and rode without a helmet to Brighton and Hove before crashing at Churchill Square car park.

Police said he ignored red lights as pedestrians were crossing, mounted pavements and rode into oncoming traffic.

He pleaded guilty to a serious of driving offences and was sentenced at Lewes Crown Court.
