Hells Angel BBC reporter sacked

Working for the BBC as a journalist would be enough for most people, but for Steve Jones it was just a day job as he was moonlighting as a spokesperson for the Hells Angels.

Echo, as he is also known, was spotted being interviewed by the BBC itself, in his capacity as the Press Officer of the annual Bulldog Bash biker festival.

In the interview Echo was seen wearing the Hells Angel badge but while being interviewed he claimed that, in the UK, Hells Angels are simply a brotherhood of bikers and not a criminal organisation.

Steve Jones was dismissed from the BBC following a disciplinary hearing.

The BBC went on to say that he is a lovely man, although he can be a bit of a maverick.
