Berlin police swoop on Hell's Angels bikers

There’ve been furthers raids on the bikers’ club Hell’s Angels in Germany, this time in the capital Berlin.

The sweep, on around 30 homes, was brought forward after gang members were tipped off.

On Tuesday, the state parliament banned the “Berlin City” chapter of the gang which is suspected of involvement in violent crimes.

There are thought to be more than 1,000 members of biker gangs in Berlin.

Last week, police in northern Germany carried out large-scale raids on Hell’s Angels gangs.
