The funeral of biker Robert Dunlop will take place today in Co Antrim.

The service will take place at 4pm in Garryduff Presbyterian Church, near Ballymoney, Co Antrim. Dunlop is survived by his wife and children William, Michael and Daniel. Dunlop, 47, was killed on Thursday in a 257 kph crash during a practice run at the North West 200 near Portrush, Co Antrim. The PSNI are currently investigating the incident. Dunlop was previously involved in a serious accident in 1994 at the Isle of Man TT races, which forced him to retire from the sport. However, he was able to return to racing through using a specially adapted bike. The champion biker's brother Joey was killed in a similar accident eight years ago in Estonia.
