TV show debates banning TT

A row over whether the TT should be banned has been reignited in a TV show aired this week.

The BBC1 show Inside Out North West looked at the TT on Monday night, saying the racing death toll has renewed a campaign for the festival to be cancelled.

The widow of a TT rider killed during last year's racing, featured in the show saying the festival should not be banned.

Janet Cowden says despite her loss it would be'disrespectful' to Paul Shoesmith's memory if the event was scrapped.
