Conor thanks chamber for 'vital role' in his recovery

A Manx motorcyle star who is still recovering from an horrific crash in this year's Senior TT is paying tribute to the Island's hyperbaric chamber.

Conor Cummins came off at the Verandah and was airlifted to Noble's.

He then spent a couple of months in hospital, during which he had a number of operations.

His back was broken in five places, and he had a fractured arm and a badly damaged knee.

Conor's aim is to be back on his bike next year and he told BBC Isle of Man the chamber is playing a vital role in his recovery (play audio file):

Earlier this week, the medical technologist at the chamber, Dave Downie, said the future of the facility still wasn't secure, and more funding was needed on an on going basis.
