This week’s Isle of Man Examiner has the full story.
Also in the paper:
>Could the Isle of Man have a windfall from wind farms?
>Minister Chris Robertshaw tells us about his new job, transforming the Manx government
>We have the second part of our series of features about being unemployed. The first has sparked a big debate among readers here
>A previously unpublished work from the late George MacDonald Fraser, who lived in the island, has been unearthed.
>We look forward to a new vessel starting work for the Steam Packet
>Our business coverage has never been just about Athol Street. Today, we meet a woman whose private hire car business is called The Lady Chauffeurs.
