A man arrested for being on closed roads has been sentenced to eight weeks in custody.

47-year-old David Seager appeared at Douglas Courthouse today after being taken in by police for committing an offence under section 2 of the Public Order Act, and being on closed roads.

Mr Seager was one of four men being verbally abusive to marshalling staff who had instructed them to get back behind the barriers.

He was subsequently excluded from the Isle of Man.

Police hope the aftermath of this incident sends a message that anti-social behaviour towards fellow spectators and marshals won't be tolerated.
