Have your say

Problems have been identified with the roadworks on Peel Road.

It means part of the road will have to be relaid.

The Manx Independent has the story on page one of this week’s edition.

Also on page one is a remarkable image of the Ayres, much of which is under water after the wet winter.

Inside, we report on:

>A landlord suggesting that a mosque could be set up in a former church in Douglas.

>A new bylaw that could stop people drying washing in their own gardens.

>The inquest into a prisoner, which heard that medics had been warned he could react badly to a drug.

>The latest Keys debate on the toilet tax.

>Castletown Commissioners’ latest meeting regarding the development at Callow’s Yard.

>The visit of Manx Grand Prix newcomers

>The itinerary for the visit of the Queen’s baton which is to come to the island before the Commonwealth Games

>A father who believes the removal of a bus shelter could be dangerous

Our Island Life section looks forward to the craft fair weekend and includes a picture special of Maughold’s pancake races.

The Independent includes 12 pages of sport, with enduro star David Knight dominating the back page.

The paper also includes a seven-day television guide and the Isle of Man’s two-page What’s On guide.

The Manx Independent is in the shops now.
