Motorcycle racer Guy Martin is gearing up for a second attempt at breaking the two-wheeled world land speed record.
The daredevil from Grimsby is out in America hoping to break the current record of 376 miles an hour. He had to abandon the quest yesterday after his bike tipped over on the course.
An attempt to break the two-wheeled world land speed record by motorcycle racer Guy Martin has been postponed due to safety concerns about the wet track.
Triumph Motorcycles said they needed "optimum conditions" to perform the attempt, which has been rescheduled to Friday.
Martin, 34, from Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire, was due to begin record runs on the Bonneville Salt Flats, in Utah, USA, earlier but the attempt was delayed while organisers waited for the salt to dry out.<
A Triumph spokesman said there were still areas of the 11-mile course that were "too wet to safely undertake any runs at present".
The Grimsby Paralympian threw 41.68m in the women's F45/46 javelin final to set the record and then broke it again with a throw of 43.01m.Read the full story ›
A man is due to appear in court today following a rooftop stand-off in Welllington Street, Grimsby on Friday September 9.
20-year-old Corey Ford of Grimsby has been charged with robbery and affray.
In recent months we have witnessed a number of incidents when individuals have taken to roof tops when trying to evade the police. This has a detrimental effect on the police service with a large number of resources needed to manage the incident and therefore meaning other people have to wait longer for us to respond to them.
What's more, the people living and working in the areas affected by these incidents suffer the consequences with their daily lives severely interrupted and on some occasions we have had to restrict people from accessing their own homes and businesses for their own safety - something we do with some reluctance.
We will work with the Crown Prosecution Service and the courts to ensure the widespread disruption these people cause when evading the police in this way is taken into consideration when they are being dealt with at court.
