University aims to inspire to Manx students

Professor hopes more will follow in footsteps of famed former resident

A university in the UK capital is hoping many more Islanders will follow in the footsteps of a famed former resident.

Horologist Dr George Daniels, who spent most of his life living on the Isle of Man, had a strong association with City University of London.

The institution still benefits from a trust fund set up by the watchmaker following his death in 2011.

Professor Ken Grattan is the George Daniels Professor of Scientific Instrumentation at the univeristy.

He hopes the work of Dr Daniels will inspire more people to study there.
