This week's Isle of Man Examiner

Have your say

The Isle of Man Examiner this week talks to a pregnant woman whose car was written off by a drink-driver.

She was lucky to escape unscathed.

It’s the main story on the front page.

Also this week we report the death of Orry the sea lion.

He was big news 20 years ago when he was sold. He had been at the Wildlife Park. But he was eventually part of a travelling circus.

The older members of the Isle of Man Newspapers team remember the story well. His plight touched the hearts of many people and led to a political furore.

We look back.
