Hundreds gather for anti-racism protest in Douglas

Constabulary working with demonstration organisers

More than a hundred people have gathered on Douglas promenade to take part in an anti-racism demonstration.

The Isle of Man Constabulary is working alongside organisers to make sure the event is carried out safely.
