The antics of a gang of fearsome bikers - dubbed the 'real life Fight Club' - have been documented in a series of stunning pictures after a new British magazine managed to get unprecedented access to the group.<br />
<br />
Journalist Martin Pashley, 41, and photographer James Cheadle, 43, came face to face with the frightening bikers who are 'addicted to fire and fighting'.<br />
<br />
The gang of 52 members, some of whom live double lives and actually have respectable jobs, spend their evenings fighting each other in brutal battles inside a boxing ring - in scenes reminiscent of the 1999 hit film, Fight Club. <br />
<br />
Fighters - including women - are left battered, bruised and bleeding after enjoying a full-blown scrap in front of a packed clubhouse of up to 300 people. SEE OUR COPY FOR MORE DETAILS. <br />
