A nail-biting motorbike crash takes second place in the Sports category

Terry Donnelly from Liverpool came second for this dramatic shot of a motorbike crash.
Taken during a race in Cheshire, Donnelly said: ‘The motorcycle shot was from Oulton Park, when a rider had lost control of the motorbike and slid into the run off area and become detached from the motorbike.
‘The rider was unhurt and quickly stood up and walk away, which is a testament to the safety of UK race circuits and their designs.’ (SWNS)
