Meanwhile, Manx National Heritage says a harbour on the Calf of Man has been seriously damaged by a storm over the weekend.

The damage happened at the entrance to South Harbour on the south east side of the Calf when boulders at the outer marker collapsed, blocking the harbour and making passage hazardous for vessels.

MNH says it’s currently assessing the damage.

However, it’s asking visitors not to land their boats at South Harbour until further notice.
