Is the planned rival service to the Steam Packet doomed?

Today’s Isle of Man Examiner has spoken to one of the men behind it. He’s warned that it might not happen.

Also in this week’s paper, we report on a disturbing case involving a patient who died from deep vein thrombosis. Her family hit out at the hospital during her inquest.

The paper also reports:
