Cycle gangs' growing reign of terror.

ILLEGAL motorcycle gangs are among the most feared organisations in the US.

Growing from lawful get togethers for bike fans into criminal gangs, a few now control much of the dark US underworld.

Five of the biggest and most notorious are: The Hells Angels, Bandidos, Mongols, Outlaws and Pagans. Most gangs are into drug dealing and violent crime.

The Hells Angels have 3,500 members d worldwide, including the UK. But they lost Southern California to the ultraviolent Mongols, who are now allied against them with the Bandidos, Outlaws, Sons of Silence and Pagans.

Seven UK Outlaws carried out the killing of Hell's Angel Gerry Tobin on the M40 in 2007.
