More than 300 motor bikes have been ridden through Bury St Edmunds in support of a local teenager who has autism and who's allegedly been a victim of bullying.

The event was organised by the group "Never Surrender", which is made up of mainly ex-military people and is designed to help vulnerable people.

In addition to showing support, the bikers also handed over gifts to the 14-year-old girl.

This is what Never Surrender is all about. It's bringing communities back together, not only just for our veterans but for the homeless on the streets and for kids that are getting bullied. Believe it or not, when I was younger I got bullied, with a surname Cumberpatch you can understand why, so I can the cabbage patch kid form many years until I shot up and was able to look after myself.
