Proposals by Braddan Commissioners to restrict residents drying washing adjacent to a highway have come under fire from one of the parish’s residents.

Erica Kermode, who lives in Strang Road, has accused commissioners of being petty and bureaucratic in creating the new by-laws which are now awaiting official approval by Tynwald.
