Ian Bell Killed in IOM TT race

Recommended Posts

I was devastated to receive a message from my Brother in law,which broke the news about Ian and Carl's terrible accident.

It was nearly midnight on Friday night when I got the news,and just couldn't believe what I was reading.

My heart goes out to Trudi,and thier family,[first and foremost],Ron and the lads in the shop,and all the team at the track,who will all be broken-hearted.

A true Gentleman,well-liked by everybody,and always ready to stop what he was doing,[in the shop],to come over for a bit canny crack.

Ian and Ron,together,made you feel like you were the only customer in the shop.

Ian will be sadly missed by all who knew him.

Thanks Easyhostmedia for starting this fitting tribute to the canniest fella you would ever wish to meet.

I am now wondering where the rest of Bedlington are?

Yes,Webtrekker,good point,when I took flowers and cards for Ian's Family and the shop Staff,I was impressed by the tributes which were laid,and reading the cards made me well-up,gud and proper.

Has there been  any funeral details been released yet?

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
