Charity plans memorial bench for TT rider

A charity is raising money for a memorial bench in honour of a TT racer who died last year.

The Joey Dunlop Foundation says Paul Shoesmith - who was killed during a crash on a practice lap in 2016 - was a great supporter of the organisation.

The charity provides accommodation was the disabled and works with injured riders.

The foundation currently has its funds committed to building more apartments, but has launched a separate appeal for the bench.

The bench would be next to another bench in memory of Simon Andrews, who made his TT debut competing with Shoesmith's Ice Valley team.
