Port Erin man to be treated in Germany

A paralysed Port Erin man has been accepted for pioneering stem cell therapy at a German hospital.

Chris Walmsley was struck by a car on Richmond Hill in 2006 and is now being cared for in a Ballasalla residential home.

His family have been collecting money for the treatment, which would cost nearly £30,000.

Chris's mother Carol has been spearheading the fundraising efforts:
