Orange Army seeks more recruits

The Orange Army in the Isle of Man is recruiting

With a week to go before the first practice session for this year's TT, the Marshals Association is looking for more volunteers.

At least 504 are needed for any session to go ahead.

So far, nearly 950 people have expressed an interest in helping out at some point over the fortnight.

But Chairman of the Marshals Association, Bill Carden, says these people won't be available for every race, so it's vital more marshals sign up.

And he is re-assuring anyone who has concerns about liability in the event of an incident (audio file attached):
