The third practice session of this year's Isle of Man TT races on Tuesday was cut short due to a red-flag incident at Sarah's Cottage involving husband and wife team Robin and Annette Daykin.

Fortunately Mr Daykin, who is 73, escaped unhurt, while his 61-year-old wife sustained a broken ankle in the crash.

The session was halted, as the area where the accident happened at Lambfell is inaccessible by helicopter and an ambulance was dispatched to the scene via the course.
