University aims to inspire Manx students

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

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

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

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

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