Experts on sports head injuries from Britain, Australia and America are to take part in a Jockey Club seminar.

The two-day conference entitled "Concussion and Head Injury in Sport" is being held in London on 30-31 January in conjunction with the Medical Advisers of Professional Sports.

Administrators and medical staff of sports where head injuries are a hazard will attend. "It is 10 years since we last reviewed the situation and medical opinion has moved on,'' Jockey Club chief medical adviser Dr Michael Turner, said.
