Manx court jails speeding UK biker for two months

Think the Isle of Man's a speeding free-for-all? Think again

A MANX COURT has jailed a visiting UK biker for two months after he rode dangerously around the TT course at high speed.

David Brian Glossop, 29, from Wilmslow in Cheshire, was filmed by a police motorcyclist with a video camera as he sped alonng the Cronk y Voddy straight towards Kirk Michael. Police say Mr Glossop rode at speeds in excess of 100mph, as well as riding on the wrong side of the road near blind bends.

Glossop admitted the charge in relation to the incident, which happened just after this year's Manx Grand Prix.

Mr Moyle said he was giving credit for the defendant's honesty in admitting the charge, but he had to be consistent in sentencing.

Glossop was also banned from driving for two-and-a-half years.
