A boarding house keeper found that travel agents in England knew very little about the Isle of Man when she did her own market research.

She was so frustrated she went to Newcastle city centre to try to drum up business.

Today’s Isle of Man Examiner, which is in the shops now, has the full story.

The paper also features a news story about an author who has written a book about Osama Bin Laden. He wanted to give a talk about it in Onchan Library but he is not being allowed to. Find out why in today’s paper.

The Sefton debate continues to dominate the news and we have more from Economic Development Minister John Shimmin MHK about the issue.

This week’s Big Picture is of the linkspan after it was damaged by the Ben-my-Chree. We’ve devoted a whole page to it so you’ll be able to see the extent of the damage.

As another bus strike looms, possibly during the TT, we talk to both sides of the dispute.

The back page is dominated by Mark Cavendish’s latest success.

The paper also has the latest Guild results and news about the winner of the Cleveland Medal.

It might be a bank holiday today, but the Examiner is in the shops as usual.
