Help us catch a potential road killer


                            
MAG is offering up to £1,000 to catch a potential road killer.

MAG has announced a £1,000 reward for information leading to the 
successful prosecution of the individual responsible for a 'hit & run' 
incident near the Squires Café Bar in North Yorkshire, where a car 
driver left a seriously injured motorcyclist, Matthew Ramsden, lying on 
the road with his damaged motorcycle.

The incident occurred in Sherburn-in-Elmet. Police say that Matthew was 
travelling along the B1222, near Peckfield, on Sunday 6 January at 
around 4.40pm, when he collided with a car at the junction with the A63. 
The driver did not stop at the scene.

Castleford-based firm, West Riding Personal Financial Solutions, has 
also put up £1,000 for information leading to a prosecution. Police 
believe the car to be a silver saloon - possibly a VW or a Skoda - and 
it suffered severe rear bumper damage as a result of the collision.

Yorkshire MAG Representative Richard ‘Manny’ Manton describes this 
latest incident as a ‘line in the sand.’ He says: ‘the guilty driver 
showed no respect for the biker’s life or property – and also decided to 
evade the law instead of fulfilling a basic moral and legal 
responsibility as a road user.’

Manny continues: ‘we’re offering up to one thousand pounds for 
information leading to a successful prosecution because MAG isn’t going 
to stand by and tolerate blatant criminality on the highways of 
Yorkshire - or any other part of Britain. If you know who did this, and 
you don’t speak up, you’re protecting someone who can’t be trusted by 
you or anyone else. Help us get justice – and potentially pick up a 
thousand pounds for yourself. This offender isn’t fit to be on the 
roads. If they are not found, they can do it again - to you or someone 
you love.’

Please contact MAG on 01926 844 064 with any information. You can speak 
to us in confidence. We won’t reveal your identity – we just want the 
identity of a law-breaker too cowardly to stay at the scene of a serious 
accident where someone could have died.
