The inquest into the death of Manx road racer Dan Kneen has recorded a verdict of death by misadventure.

The 30-year-old from Onchan died at Churchtown during practice for the TT races in May last year.

This inquiry had been adjourned from September - when Coroner John Needham chose to seek further evidence.

That decision was taken after the rider's family questioned why data downloaded from his BMW Superbike hadn't been examined.

Dan's father Richard believed the information would show whether there were any problems with the bike which may have contributed to the incident.
