It was somewhat of a disrupted night in last night's fourth TT qualifying session with two red flag incidents to contend with.

Conditions on the Mountain Course were cool and overcast with reports of damp roads leading to the sidecars going out first.

The sidecar practice was red flagged and stopped just after 15 minutes due to a civilian emergency at Quarterbridge - a further incident at Pinfold Cottage after the session restarted then led to another red flag.

Ewan Walker and Dickie Gale were airlifted to hospital - Walker sustained minor injuries whilst Gale is reported to have back and knee injuries.

Weather conditions improved as the night went on with the solos taking to the Mountain Course at 8.05pm and the supersport and lightweight contenders able to get three laps in.
