On August 12, 2007, mechanic and Hell’s Angel, Gerry Tobin, was shot dead by a rival biker gang as he was riding his motorcycle on the M40 in Warwickshire. The shooting, on a busy Sunday afternoon, was carefully planned by members of the Outlaw’s biker gang and had roots in a turf war.
But the nature of the attack, brought a previously underground world screaming into the mainstream. Sky Correspondent, Darren Little, was dispatched to the murder scene, not knowing that it was the beginning of a story that would take more than two years to tell and culminate in a face-to-face meeting with one of Europe’s most notorious crime bosses.

    From Pauls Valley in Oklahoma, USA, Miles Hill always dreamed of joining the US Marine Corps.Growing up, family life was coloured by US military history - his grandparents served in World War Two and Korea. So when al Qaeda terrorists attacked the US on 11 September, 2001, it set in motion a chain of events that brought Hill to Iraq in 2003, as part of the Marine Corps. An idealistic 19-year-old, Hill had little understanding of geo-politics, but it was his absolute conviction that the world would be a better place without the Saddam Hussein. The Iraqi dictator had been a destabilising influence in the region since the 1990 Gulf War. Now accused of stockpiling weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) as well as forging links with al Qaeda terrorists, Hill and his fellow Marines were tasked with leading the ground invasion and deposing Hussein. On the morning of the invasion, military leaders warned of the bloodiest urban battle in US Marine Corp history. By the end of that day, Miles Hill would find himself at the centre of one of this century’s most iconic moments.In 2021, Sky News is marking some of the century’s biggest news events through the personal stories of lives defined by unforgettable moments from the last 21-years.Taking down Saddam is episode 14 of the 21-part series StoryCast ’21CREDITS ‘Taking down Saddam’ was produced and written by Rob Mulhern.Recordings and digital Tom GillespieSpecial thanks to Miles Hill and David Chater.Presented by Jayne SeckerSound Design, Rob MulhernTV treatment, Victoria Hudson-GrantArchive, Simon WindsorHead of Radio, Sky News, Dave Terris Design and graphics, Brian GillinghamSocial media, Chris ScottPress and Marketing, Alexandra HortonEmail: [email protected] more on this story go to www.skynews/storycast21#StoryCast21

    Reporters typically arrive to the scene of a major news story after the event. But on March 22, 2016, Sky News National Correspondent, Alex Rossi, was in the Duty Free at Brussels Airport when ISIS terrorists detonated two bombs in the departures lounge. Just metres from where he was stood only moments earlier, people now lay dead. Among those severely injured was Sebastien Bellin, a former Belgian basketball player. Just months before, in November 2015, ISIS had attacked Paris, killing 130 people. Because of the nature of that attack, both men now expected more bombs and further deaths.Within an hour, another bomb was detonated on the Metro in central Brussels.Amidst the confusion, Alex Rossi began to document, live on Sky News, the terrifying unfolding situation inside the airport. What he had no understanding of at that time was the devastation inside the departure lounge, where Sebastien Bellin lay stricken.Revisiting their respective experiences in depth this podcast is a graphic account of the attack on Brussels - which claimed 32 lives - from the perspective of both men.CREDITSTerror in Brussels Airport was recorded by Tom Gillespie.Production, writing and sound design by Rob MulhernSpecial thanks to our contributors, Sebastien Bellin and Alex RossiArchive, Simon WindsorTV treatment, Gemma WatsonTV output editor, Emily DeekerDigital, Tom GillespieHead of Radio, Sky News, Dave TerrisDesign and graphics, Brian GillinghamSocial media, Chris ScottPress and Marketing, Alexandra HortonEmail: [email protected] more on this story log on to www.skynews/storycast21#StoryCast21
