Speeding motorcyclist caught by own helmet camera

A speeding motorcyclist who was caught out by footage on his own helmet camera has been sentenced.

Nicholas Pannell, 30, crashed into a hedge as he raced fellow biker Joshua Illingworth, 29, at speeds up to 118mph last July.

A recording of the pursuit was found on Pannell's camera when Devon Police were called to the scene.

The pair were both given eight-month jail terms, suspended for two years, at Plymouth Crown Court.

Pannell crashed his motorbike through a hedge on the A381 near Halwell, in the South Hams, on 2 July, the court heard.
