Efforts to improve 'shabby' capital

The leader of Douglas Council says a concerted effort is needed to ensure visitors to the Island have a good impression of the capital.

David Christian has added his voice to the debate over the look of Douglas - after departing TT visitors described it as run-down and shabby.

Douglas Counci has spent £2 million upgrading parts of the town, including Strand Street and North Quay.

But Councillor Christian says there are still too many empty, weed-strewn sites, pot-holed roads and building faaling into disrepair.

He says decaying infrastructure is one of the main problems.
