A sidecar passenger injured at this year's TT has been transferred to a hospital in his home country.

TT organisers have confirmed Olivier Lavorel has returned to France to continue his recovery from injuries sustained in the abandoned running of Sidecar Race 1.

The newcomer was left in a critical condition following the incident at Ago's Leap, which claimed the life of his teammate, Cesar Chanal.

Mr Lavorel was initially taken to Noble's Hospital for treatment before being flown to a Merseyside facility.
