William Dunlop 'a gentleman'

Rider died after Skerries crash on Saturday

TT and Southern 100 regular William Dunlop has died following a practice session crash at the Skerries road races in Ireland.

The 32-year-old, from Ballymoney in Northern Ireland, was a member of the renowned Dunlop family - his father was Robert, his uncle Joey, and his brother Michael.

He was a regular winner at Billown and had five podiums at the TT.

He also recorded seven wins at the Ulster Grand Prix and four victories at the North West 200.

In a distinguished career he accumulated 108 Irish National Road Race wins, including 15 at Skerries.

He leaves a daughter, Ella, and partner Janine, who is expecting their second child.

Manx Radio TT commentator Tim Glover has been recalling his final chat with William at TT 2018:
