Wet weather and crash bring an end to TT practice

The weather, and a crash, brought an end to this evening's TT practice session.

At 6.50pm it was red flagged, only about 20 minutes after starting, following the incident at the top of Barregarrow.

The rider involved, Belgian newcomer Laurent Hoffman, was taken to Noble's hospital by airmed with suspected leg injuries.

As the site was being cleared the rain closed in, leading to a decision to abandon the session just after 7.30pm.

Spots of rain had already begun to fall at certain points around the Mountain Course, including at the TT Grandstand.
