Douglas Railway Station might have to be demolished if it’s not redeveloped, the Isle of Man Examiner has learned.

The full story is on page three.

On page one, the paper reveals information about the debt that led to the collapse of Barry Curran Motors.

It also reveals the huge drop in passengers flying to and from the island to London.

Inside, we report on a pensioner who drove his Porsche drunk after visiting the theatre.

The Manx Gas price rise, announced last week and blamed on shrinking profits caused by mild weather, was ‘a bit odd’, the Chief Minister tells the paper. He and the Treasury Minister explain why there’s no legal regulation.

Meanwhile, we were in court when a man was jailed for his part in sinking a boat. The full story is inside.

Our sports team wrap up the Manx Grand Prix and have all the weekend action too.

With lively letters, Terry Cringle’s nostalgia column and 12 pages of business coverage, the Isle of Man Examiner is an essential read this week.
