Town hall evacuated after fire alarm set off

By Paul Speller Twitter: @iomnewspapers in East

Douglas town hall was evacuated this afternoon (Wednesday) after the fire alarm went off.

It meant a delay in proceedings to the monthly council meeting.

Reporter Paul Speller took this picture of members of town hall staff and Douglas councillors at the assembly point at Shaw’s Brow car park.

After a short wait, they were allowed to return to the building.

How terrible! Poor dears. Did they get sunburnt having to stand outside in the sunshine? Why weren't comfortable chairs provided as befits their civic status?

If there hadn't been a photograph I'd have thought this 'fake' news. Gripping stuff, I think something similar happened at the Palace Lido once, on New Year's Eve
