How can historic parts of Castletown be saved from sea erosion?

Today’s Manx Independent looks at the issue and includes reports and pictures from the flooding on Monday.

Among the other stories the paper reports are:

- Police are to lose officers as cuts hit the force.

- Motorists are now being charged to use car parks in Douglas on a Sunday. There’s been a backlash.

- We talk to one headteacher about the proposal reported on yesterday to have a daytime practice during school hours in the TT. He says it would be a nightmare.

- A proposal to change bin collections that could see them taken out of the hands of local authorities and save ratepayers hundreds of thousands of pounds.

- Education bosses hit back after an MHK accused the department of not teaching enough about Manx history in schools.

- A full report on this inquest.

In our Island Life section, we feature Davy Knowles, the Manx blues star, who did four special gigs in a night.

We also look at the launch of Island of Culture.

As usual, the paper includes the latest sporting action from across the island.

There are also two photos in the paper that you must see.

Our photographer snapped a car on its roof after an accident on Quarterbridge Road, Douglas, and a reader took a fantastic photo of last weekend’s lightning.

The Manx Independent is in the shops now.
