Major police presence for WA bikie funeral

Nick Martin

Hundreds of bikies are set to flood the streets of Perth before attending the funeral of murdered Rebels MC leader Nick Martin.

Bikies from multiple clubs are expected to join a procession from North Perth to Padbury via Scarborough Beach Road.

Motorists are being advised to avoid the area, while police are promising a significant presence along the route, at the cemetery and at licensed venues.

Crowds at funerals are capped at 500 under WA’s COVID-19 restrictions but police are not expecting that many mourners to attend.

A wake is expected to be held at the Rebels’ clubhouse in East Victoria Park.

WA Police Assistant Commissioner Brad Royce says up to 200 police officers will be on hand to deal with any trouble.

The permits are mandatory for all interstate arrivals.
