Thanks for those involved in torch relay

The Department of Community Culture and Leisure has thanked all those involved in the Olympic torch relay on the Island.

The world famous flame was paraded around the Island by runners, motorbike and horse tram last Saturday and visited famous Manx icons as the Laxey wheel.

DCCL Minister Tim Crookall MHK has thanked everyone who came out and showed support for the locally nominated Torchbearers, who he says were all excellent ambassadors for the Isle of Man.

Mr Crookall says there was "overwhelming support" from the community, commissioners, police, TT organisers, media, private sector and Government Departments for the prestigious occasion.

The department has released a short video to commemorate the event. Shot by local company YourMovieCrew it can be seen on YouTube and ManxTube.
