One-armed rider Chris Mitchell makes TT course history

Manx motorcyclist Chris Mitchell tells BBC North West Tonight becoming the first one-armed competitor to complete a race around the island's world famous TT course is "up there with having my first daughter".

He rode a specially adapted Suzuki machine to 11th place out of 20 riders in Wednesday's Manx Grand Prix Newcomer's B race, averaging 99.134mph.

Mitchell lost the use of his arm in a motorcycle accident in 2001.
