Visitor numbers up

Douglas-based travel agency Regency Travel says it's seen a huge rise in people coming to the Isle of Man in the last year.

The company says over the last twelve months, it's seen double the usual numbers of holidaymakers booking breaks to the Island.

Richard Howarth of Regency Travel says the numbers are in line with the Department of Tourism and Leisure's figures which show an increase in visitors.

He say the past few months have seen numbers increasing each week, and says the signs for the end of the summer season are encouraging.
