Tyrone motorcyclist Adrian McFarland has been killed in an accident during a race in the Czech Republic.

McFarland, 41, from Plumbridge near Omagh, died in the crash near the town of Hradec Kralove on Saturday.

He had been a regular competitor on the Isle of Man, achieving four top 10 finishes in the Manx Grand Prix races.

A former sponsor of McFarland, Mark McCausland, said: "I have just heard, and I am stunned. He was a great guy. I was proud when he was riding my bikes."
