Pub named after motorcycle racer

A public house in South Wales is to be renamed after a TT rider.

A Wetherspoon's pub in Caerphilly will be called The Malcolm Uphill in honour of the rider, after a campaign by local residents.

Malcolm Uphill, who died in 1999, was the first man to record a 100 miles an hour lap of the TT course on a production bike.

He achieved the feat riding his Triumph Bonneville in 1969.

There are also plans for a plaque honouring him in the town.
