Over £180,000 was spent on additional policing hours during this year's TT.

The majority of the total was for extra police officer hours, costing £166,044.40.

Retired officers made up over £8,500 of the total, while almost £5,000 was spent on additional hours from special constables and civilians.

The figures were revealed in a written answer from Home Affairs Minister Bill Malarkey at this month's sitting of Tynwald.
