Work will start next week to repair flood damage on the Manx Electric Railway near Ballaglass Glen, Maughold.

A two-metre-deep sinkhole opened up on the line following heavy rainfall in February this year.

Specialist engineers were called in to assess the damage and their interim report has now been received.

Initial repairs will be made to ensure the line can open as planned on April 4.
