A 55 year old motorcyclist from Bolton has died on the Isle of Man.

The man collided with a local driver this morning at approximately 6:45 AM on Hailwood's Rise on the Mountain Course, crashing into the rear of the local's Citroen C4.

Members of the public, police and paramedics at the scene tried to revive the man, but he was pronounced dead on his arrival at Nobles Hospital.

This is a very sad outcome. I would like to appeal to anyone that has not been spoken to that may have witnessed the incident to get in touch with Roads Policing at Headquarters on 01624 631212.
