Gold snatched away from Manx star

There's been some controversy at the NatWest Island Games.

The decision to award Liz Holden with a gold medal in the Women's Cycling Criterium has been reversed -  nearly 24 hours after the race finished.

Judges initially hit Jersey with a one-lap penalty for showing up to the start-line late.

Manx cyclist Liz would have won gold in the event with Jersey's Kim Ashton taking silver had the penalty stood.

But an appeal from the host nation has seen the punishment halved with Liz and Kim swapping places on the podium.
