Family upset as resting place covered

'Mound of mud' on grave of former TT racer

Soil has been poured over the resting place of a former road racer, leaving his family upset.

Daniel Hegarty was laid to rest in Bingham Cemetery where, what has been described as 'a huge mound of mud' has been piled on top of the grave.

A regular TT competitor, Hegarty lost his life last year at the Macau Grand Prix.

Tributes marking the anniversary of his death were moved during the incident to make way for the soil.

Family members of Daniel say it was 'absolutely heartbreaking'.
