For two weeks of the year some of them get to be rock and roll coppers. Plenty of overtime, fast cars and nice toys, high adrenaline and quick response. 'We're the Sweeney son and we haven't 'ad our dinner'

The police used to 'calm' the visiting fans, like a sensible parent. Now they just wind them up.

I beg to differ. I doubt the Cinderella tableau enacted, photographed and placed on social media by the  the police when a visiting biker lost his boot would have happened in the case of a local biker losing their footwear.

Anyone know why the mountain was closed for several hours last night? Haven't heard anything.

There are fresh accident markings at the Douglas end of the Mountain Mile and damage to the bank on the LH side, Douglas-bound.

Yesterday morning there was a red hatchback off onto the bank at Keppel Gate and this morning a small, bronze coloured hatchback on the field at the inside of Windy Corner.

As long as they explained where all these TT names relate to! Windy Corner, the Mountain Mile??? Where the hell are they???

Is this a serious question?

There are signs for windy corner (and a windsock, on a corner) and it’s a two second google to find the answers

If you and Amadeus teamed up we could do away with all the local news sources. 

If you want another, over the weekend somebody managed to demolish the garden wall at Cruickshanks on May Hill in Ramsey....looks like a straight on job or expiry of talent allotment....

It’s been pretty well cleared up now.

There is still a joke on the wall but the rubble has gone, as has the car that was on the drive that had its window smashed.

Good effort in a 30

It’s not really that surprising given the weight of a modern car, it’s a 1.5+ tonne mass hitting a stone wall, but the accident itself is an odd one, given it’s a steep uphill section you’d the expect brakes to work quite efficiently.
