More collisions during TT 2016

Three fatal incidents during fortnight

TT, the busiest fortnight in the Island's year, saw 110 arrests - half as many as a decade ago - but a rise in the number of collisions on Manx roads.

There were three fatal accidents on public roads, the same as last year.

Statistics show there were 99 road traffic collisions, compared with 86 last year.

Three of those collisions proved fatal, including a woman who was killed in an incident at the Jubilee Oak at Braddan.

Overall there were 10 serious incidents compared with 17 last year.

The sun shone every day which meant bikers were out more on the roads and could account for the increase in collisions.

One problem that will be looked at closely is the increasing number of drunken, local juveniles.
