Island community shows its true colours

Chief Minister Allan Bell praises community spirit in stormy weather

Island residents are being praised for showing their community spirit in a ‘time of need’ for bikers.

Monday evening’s stormy conditions brought down a number of trees, forced emergency services to close roads and washed out several TT camp sites.

But the community showed its true colours with a number of facilities and individuals around the Island opening their doors and offering shelter, drying facilities and food for visitors who were unable to stay at their chosen campsites.

Allan Bell says it was heartening to see so many locals rally round.
