Police are searching for a biker who has failed to answer bail after being arrested in connection with a fatal collision.
Levi Douglas, 21, was riding the motorbike which collided with a minibus in Wood Lane, Dagenham, at about 4.50pm on April 29 last year.
Sean Thake, 22, who was a passenger on the bike, died at the scene.
After being discharged from hospital, Mr Douglas was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, driving with no insurance or driving licence, possession of cannabis and taking and driving away without consent.
He was released on bail pending further enquiries and was due to return to a police station in August last year, but he failed to attend.
