A BMX (bicycle motocross) track near Glen Wyllin in Kirk Michael had been permanently closed due to a change in land ownership at the fish farm.

Michael Commissioners say they tried to negotiate a continuation of a lease with the new land owner but were unsuccessful.

The local authority says it is looking at other possibilities for the village, but it needs to be easily accessible.

Parents in the village are now being urged to make sure children don’t use the track.
