Isle of Man rider Billy Redmayne has suffered serious injuries in a crash at the Oliver's Mount Spring Cup meeting in England.

The Bob Smith Spring Cup meeting at Scarborough was abandoned following the Manx soldier's accident on Sunday.

A spokesman for the event said the 25-year-old was taken to Middlesbrough Hospital where he is "undergoing treatment for his injuries".

Redmayne won the Junior Manx Grand Prix last year and is regarded as one of the brightest prospects in the sport.
