In response to the spate of impromptu open air parties being organised on Facebook by youths around the island, an under 18s disco is being held in Port St Mary town hall on Friday.

The party craze of organising last-minute events via Facebook has attracted scores of young people to gatherings.

One was held in Castletown’s Poulsom Park, where several party goers were inebriated and fights broke out. A youth’s jaw was fractured, the police were called and disbanded the group.
