Castletown flooding scheme taking shape

Tree felling is now being carried out on the edge of Castletown as part of the flood protection scheme designed to protect the town.

A number of mature trees are coming down at the back of Qualtrough's Yard.

The felling will make way for a wall that will run alongside the inner harbour.

Castletown suffered serious flooding in January 2014.

After that - and with concerns about a rise in tidal levels - plans were drawn up to try and stop flood water inundating side streets and roads.

The trees are being cut down now so works don't interfere with wildlife in the area.
