Franck Petricola, who crashed during the opening practice session of the 2014 Vauxhall International North West 200, has been flown home to hospital in France today to continue his recovery.

The 31 year old, who was riding for the Ice Valley team, was being treated in the intensive care unit of the Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast since the crash. Over the last few days he was being brought gradually out of sedation and was responding well to the medical team.

Doctors expect Franck to make a full recovery.
