Man now in a critical but stable condition in UK

Two motorcyclists who were injured in crashes yesterday have been transferred to the UK for medical treatment.

They are both in a critical but stable condition at a hospital in Aintree.

One crashed on the Mountain Road at Brandywell – the other was injured in a collision with a car in Crosby.

That man was given a blood transfusion at the scene – the first time it’s happened during TT – from medical professionals from Manx Roadracing Medical Services and Isle of Man Ambulance Service.

Gordon Ingram is a critical care paramedic, and head of operations for the Great North Air Ambulance Service, who is on Island to assist during the TT period:

Inspector Paul Kemp has praised the members of the public who stopped to help the injured man - he says police would like to speak to those who witnessed what happened:

Both casualties were transported to Aintree by the Isle of Man Air Ambulance Service.
