The family of a Hull man who was killed in a motorbike crash on Friday say they're "devastated".

67-year-old Frank Robinson died following a crash on the Peel to Douglas Road between Tynwald Hill and Ballaleece Bridge at 4.50pm.

His Triumph motorbike collided with a Suzuki motorcycle travelling in the opposite direction - Mr Robinson was pronounced dead on his arrival at Noble's Hospital.

The two people on the other bike - a man and woman from Liverpool - were taken to hospital for treatment.

A statement released by Mr Robinson's family says he was a well-respected figure in the motorcycle industry and a "dearly loved and devoted husband, father and grandpa".

They say he first visited the TT at the age of 16 and continued to attend ever since - police say investigations are continuing.
