This week's Isle of Man Examiner

Have your say

The Isle of Man Examiner today reports on a man who was let out of jail after he won an appeal in court.

He had been jailed for four months but was released after spending just 12 days in jail.

The main story on page one is good news for the Manx economy.

We report on £8.2m-worth of deals that will help to secure jobs.

The main photo on page 1 might bring a tear to the eye. It’s a group of veterans who will no longer officially meet to mark a significant date at the end of the Second World War.

Inside the paper, there is lots more news including Manx National Heritage’s take on the changes to Douglas’s prom. It wants some sort of recognition for the seafront’s time as an internment camp.

We also look more at the electoral roll fiasco. Two commissioners who weren’t on the electoral roll are not quitting. One in Port St Mary and two in Ramsey already have. A councillor from Douglas was forced to stand down.

Elsewhere, our sports team has the details from the marathon and half marathon that took place on Sunday.

With letters, two pages of nostalgia, features, the social diary and more from the courts, the Examiner is a great read this week.

It’s in the shops now.
