Uninsured motorcyclist Ahrrus Hussain killed a 73-year-old grandmother while pulling a wheelie on a busy main road.
His stunt riding the bike just on its back wheel has landed him a jail stretch of four years and nine months.
The 28-year-old from Densham Road, Stratford, admitted causing Raxmo Sharif’s death by dangerous driving in July last year.
Mrs Sharif died from multiple injuries at Whipps Cross Hospital hours after the incident in Leytonstone High Road.
Hussain himself was treated in hospital for minor injuries and discharged, then later arrested.
