Gov't climate change director resigns

Announcement comes six months after Richard Lole left DEFA CEO post

The civil servant heading up Isle of Man Government's climate change team is stepping down.

Executive Director of Climate Change, Richard Lole, has resigned after 17 years in the civil service.

The announcement comes just over six months after Mr Lole left his role as Chief Executive of the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture - a position he'd held since 2012.

Interim Chief Secretary Caldric Randall thanked Mr Lole for his commitment in his time in government, and wished him all the best for the future.
