Some people who bought tickets for the Isle of Man Festival are still waiting to get a refund.
The Manx Independent has been investigating. The full story is in today’s paper.
On the front page we also have two photos of a fishing vessel that sank in Port Erin. The reason is a mystery.
Inside, we have been talking to officials about what changes might happen at the bottom of Bray Hill after the crash during the TT and report on preparations for the Festival of Motorcycling.
The Royal Manx Show begins tomorrow (Friday). We preview that and interview the President of Tynwald, Clare Christian, after her win at the Southern Show.
We also look into the worrying state of the island’s trees. Larches have been badly hit by disease.
The paper also reports the findings of an industrial tribunal. The complainant alleged racial discrimination.
We were in court when a defendant was thrown out because of his behaviour.
The Independent also includes a report on the latest situation regarding government divers working for the Steam Packet.
With two pages of what’s on and our usual action-packed sports pages, the Manx Independent is an essential read.
