Race Clerk: Ryan Mania is 'conscious and talking'

The Clerk of Hexham Racecourse, James Armstrong says jockey Ryan Mania is conscious after being airlifted to hospital following a nasty fall during racing this afternoon.

All I can say at the moment is he's conscious and talking and he is being taken to the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle for further assessment.

Hopefully all will be fine, but we won't have any more news until later.
