TT clerk says 'sorry'

The clerk of the TT course has been forced to make an unreserved apology to try and calm a storm.

A deluge of criticism followed remarks made by Eddie Nelson, on the race communications system, last night (Thursday) in which he told marshals to 'stop whingeing'.

It followed complaints by mountain marshals they were having to wait hours to get off the course after practice and, in some cases, had to travel to Douglas before heading back to their homes in the north.

On Manx Radio TT in the last hour, Mr Nelson apologised.
