Heavy rain causes road disruption

Cars and homes caught up in flooding

The top of Crellin's Hill to Finch Road will be closed for the next few days.

It's after heavy rain overnight caused damage to the road surface which the Department of Infrastructure has deemed unsafe.

The closure also affects Finch Road between St Thomas Walk and St Barnabas Hill.

It'll remain shut to both traffic and pedestrians until DoI officials have carried out the relevant maintenance work, with the route scheduled to re-open on Thursday morning at 8am.

Elsewhere, the conditions led to vehicles becoming stranded from Peel Road through to Castletown - with homes in the south of the Island also suffering damage due to flooding.
