Council plans for Bee Gees statue on Douglas Promenade

Authority wants sculpture of brothers Gibb between Marine Gardens

Douglas Council has submitted plans to erect a statue of the Bee Gees on the capital's promenade.

The authority wants to demolish a public shelter between the Marine Gardens and replace it with a sculpture of brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb.

The three musicians were born in the Isle of Man during the 1940's, and went on to find fame as the Bee Gees, one of the best-selling artists of all time, in a career which spanned decades. 

Four lighting bollards have been included to illuminate the statue, as part of the plans which were made public this week.
