Manx Grand Prix competitor Neil Kent has died following a crash at Greeba Castle during last night's practice session.

The 49 year old from Boston in Lincolnshire was practising on his 250cc Yamaha during the Junior session.

He's competed at the MGP since 1986, and recorded his first win during the Lightweight race last year.

The Manx Motor Cycle Club says he'll be sorely missed, and extends its deepest sympathies to his friends and family.
