Video footage of moment biker crashes at high speed during race and survives

A motorcyclist from Solihull had a lucky escape after his bike crashed during a race at Snetterton Circuit in Norfolk.

The video posted on Youtube by another rider shows Joshua Boyd knocked unconscious after the bellypan of the yellow ZX10R bike in front of him fell off and hit him on the head at 140mph.

Amazingly, Joshua survived with minor injuries.

A GoFundMe page has been set up by one of his friends to help repair his bike.

Over a five-year period Chapman pursued a disgusting and widespread campaign of child sexual abuse.

He has rightly been placed behind bars where he poses no further threat to children.

His victims will now need time and expertise to help them overcome their traumatic ordeals.

This shocking case highlights how important it is that children can recognise grooming behaviour.

Parents have a vital part to play and should speak to their children about the risks they could face online.

– NSPCC spokesperson

The NSPCC’s Share Aware campaign and Net Aware page offer advice for those worried about sexual abuse.
