How easy will it really be to get EasyJet to Luton?

By The iomtoday newsdesk in Community News

This week’s Manx Independent looks at the small print for EasyJet’s service to Luton.

We look at the timetable and note that the summer schedule will have fewer flights.

The story is inside the paper.

On the front is the news that public sector workers have agreed to pay more and get less for pensions.

There’s also a court report about a man who has downloaded hundreds of indecent photos of children.

On the back page there’s David Knight, the enduro star who’s back in action just three months after having a hip replaced.

Among the stories inside:

The Manx Independent is in the shops now.
