Isle of Man TT spectator seriously injured

Ten spectators have been taken to hospital following a crash on the opening lap of the Senior TT race in the Isle of Man.

Race organisers said none of the injuries were life threatening although one person was seriously injured.

It happened on Friday, just after 13:00 BST, on Bray Hill when a rider crashed on the fast downhill section less than a mile from the start.

Witnesses described the scene as "chaos".

Organisers said the competitor involved, Jonathan Howarth from Barnsley, sustained a minor fracture.
