Castletown breakwater section falls into sea

Part of harbour wall collapses

A 20 foot section of the breakwater wall at Castletown Harbour has collapsed.

The section is halfway along the breakwater, on the wall running above the walkway out to the small lighthouse, known locally as The Pepperpot.

Castletown experienced severe problems with its seawall, just adjacent to the Old Grammar School building, in January last year, when a section collapsed and had to be rebuilt.
