The Isle of Man Government has increased its support for those affected by Cyclone Idai.

A further £50,000 has been made available to the Disasters Emergency Committee's appeal following the cyclone, which caused widespread devastation in Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe earlier this year.

The Government previously pledged £100,000 worth of support to help the 2.6m people affected by the disaster.
