Warrant issued for 152mph biker

Northamptonshire-based Portuguese speed freak wanted by UK police after failing to appear in court

A WARRANT has been issued for the arrest of a motorcyclist who was caught speeding at 152mph on roads in Northamptonshire.

Angelo Marques, aged 25, is now at risk of a consecutive jail term being added to the one he already faces after he failed to turn up for sentencing at Northampton Crown Court.

Portugal-born Marques, of Essex Street, Rugby, worked as a lorry driver until he pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and was given an interim driving ban last month.

He was travelling at 152mph, thought to be one of the fastest illegal speeds ever recorded on Northamptonshire's road network.
