Cops seek 179mph net vid biker

Burn-up footage sets new UK record

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Police would very much like to speak to a biker who filmed himself apparently gunning it at 179mph on a "dangerous stretch" of the A628 Woodhead Pass in South Yorkshire, the Daily Mirror reports.

The two-wheel speed merchant subsequently appeared in an incriminating video on LiveLeak UK, reportedly racing another bike while capturing the speedo on camera.

Police said: "This is absurdly dangerous. We'll seek to identify those involved and prosecute."

If the speedometer evidence proves to be correct, then it's "the fastest recorded on a British road", as the Mirror puts it, and breaks the previous record held by a London man who this month pleaded guilty to driving a Porsche 911 at 172mph on the A420 in Oxfordshire. ®
