Have your say

The highest-paid hospital porter at Noble’s Hospital earned more than £40,000, today’s Isle of Man Examiner reveals.

The paper contrasts the figure with that for a nurse.

As the Isle of Man continues to struggle to balance the books after the UK redrew the VAT agreement, the Examiner focuses again on public sector pay.

Inside, the paper has photos and results from the Royal Agricultural Show.

There’s also:

The latest on the plan for a new educational establishment at the Nunnery

Details of a meeting about flood defences in Castletown

More on the latest inflation figures, including the average eye-watering rise in the cost of rent

We also have a feature about a doctor who lived in the island and treated the King of Great Britain but who dabbled in the occult

The paper also includes a story a Manxman who sign up for the First World War aged just 17 100 years ago this week.

The Examiner includes its great Final Whistle sports pull-out, 12 pages of business news, the social diary and two pages of lively letters.
