A motorcycle rider has been flown to hospital on the Isle of Man after a crash at the Black Hut on the Snaefell Mountain Course.

This afternoon police closed the road after two separate crashes occurred.

The course reopened an hour ago but has only a short time ago had to close again, after a statement from Isle of Man Constabulary via Facebook said there are now two more incidents they are dealing with.

The two incidents are between Ramsey and the Bungalow and an RTC at Kate's Cottage - the road has just reopened all along the Course.
