The victim of an attack on Douglas Promenade has spoken about the incident to the Manx Independent.
He had to undergo surgery after he was beaten up.
His story is on page one of this week’s newspaper.
The paper also includes two stories about health.
David Anderson, the former health minister, responds to stinging criticism of him made earlier this week by Kate Beecroft, the MHK who leads the Liberal Vannin party.
After last week’s front page story, hospital bosses have responded. They say the hospital operates a zero tolerance policy to violence.
Also this week, the Independent reveals that an MHK has suggested an area of farm land in Onchan could be earmarked for more housing.
The paper looks forward to the Guild and looks back at Manx transport at events at the weekend.
We reveal that a restaurant has been in court after breaking fire regulations.
And the future’s bright, the future’s green, according to a Friends of the Earth bigwig who’s been to the island and thinks it’s got great potential.
With our Island Life features supplement, two pages of What’s On, 12 pages of action-packed sport and a seven-day television guide, the Independent is a must-read paper this week.
It’s in the shops now.
