Tributes have paid by people on the Isle of Man to a woman who was killed while out cycling.

Kathryn Burge, 41, died when she was in collision with a car on Main Road, in Kirk Michael, on Monday evening.

Police said a dark blue Range Rover was involved in the crash.

A spokeswoman from Noble's hospital, where Ms Burge worked as a physiotherapist, said she was "a valued and much loved member of staff", whose loss was "a shock".

She added: "We are so sad today- all of our thoughts are with Kate's family, friends and close colleagues at this difficult time".

Richie Stevenson, chairman of Manx Fell Runners, where Ms Burge was a member, said: "[She was] a very pleasant and likeable person and a talented athlete who could perform to a very high standard on fells, road and cross country.

"Manx Fell Runners would like to pass on their condolences to all Kate`s family and friends," he said.
