Isle of Man TT attracts fans from as far as Australia

About 45,000 visitors are expected during this year's Isle of Man TT fortnight but for some it has been a longer trip than others to get to the event.

Friends Eddy Corlett, 30, and Colm Connolly, 32, have completed a seven-month motorcycle journey from Darwin to the Isle of Man for the TT races.

The pair set off in November and have ridden 18,641 miles (30,000 km) through 17 countries.
