This week's Manx Independent

Have your say

Staff at Noble’s Hospital’s accident and emergency department fear for their safety when drunken and drugged-up people arrive there.

This week’s Manx Independent has spoken to an informant anonymously.

She has seen the situation, which included an incident that went to court last week, get worse.

We also speak to the Health Minister about the issue.

The paper has also been looking at the new road layout on Peel Road. If you’ve not been to Douglas to see it, it’s worth a look! We have a few pictures on page 3.
