Clypse reservoir reopens

Manx Utilities says a pink powdery substance found at the Clypse reservoir last month has been identified.

The authority says it was 'mostly chalk' and was non-toxic.

The reservoir, which is situated on the outskirts of Onchan, has been reopened, having been shut as a precaution since the powder was discovered on 19 June.
