Have your say

Our report about the lawyer’s description of the government’s Sefton Group loans as not lawful was the most-read story on our site last week.

As soon as the story broke, our site got much busier as readers wanted to find out more.

The second most-viewed story, originally broken by the Isle of Man Examiner on last week’s front page, was about an exam being interrupted by music.
