Arrrg! Me mateys.
Two horses died during yesterdays Grand National in one of the most distressing races in recent history.
Millions of TV viewers saw Ornais fall at the fourth fence, breaking his neck, while Dooneys Gate broke his back minutes later at Bechers Brook.
It meant that for the first time in the races history the two fences were bypassed during the second circuit of the Aintree track as the horses were hastily screened off with tarpaulins.
But the BBC was accused of a cover-up after commentator Mick Fitzgerald described the dead horses as obstacles.
