A 29-year-old motorcyclist has been killed in a crash on the Isle of Man Mountain Road.

The collision happened at the Mountain Box, near the TT marshal's hut, on Friday morning, the Isle of Man Constabulary said.

Police said the Honda Fireblade went out of control as it negotiated a series of bends, before leaving the road and crashing in some fields.

The rider, who was from England, was pronounced dead at the scene.

It is not known if any other vehicles were involved and police are appealing for witnesses.
