Edmund Southworth due to retire this year

The outgoing director of Manx National Heritage has defended the legacy he'll be leaving behind.

It's after a deal was struck with Treasury to get the Laxey Wheel turning again by next year's tourist season.

Concerns have been raised about the state of some heritage sites, which Edmund Southworth has rebuffed.

Mr Southworth says he's proud of what he's achieved with the organisation.
