reward after biker hurt in hit and run

The Motorcycle Action Group (MAG) has announced a £1000 reward for information leading to the successful prosecution of the individual responsible for a hit-and-run incident near the Squires Café Bar at Sherburn-in-Elmet, North Yorkshire. A car driver left a seriously injured motorcyclist, Matthew Ramsden, lying on the road with his damaged motorcycle.

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 £1000 for information leading to a prosecution. Police believe the car to be a silver saloon — possibly a VW or 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: “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. 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.”

Please contact MAG on 01926 844 064 with any information. You can speak to us in confidence. To get further police information about the incident, visit:
