A new exhibition in the Isle of Man is highlighting stories from the Manx community as part of commemorations to mark the outbreak of World War One.

This Terrible Ordeal has opened at the Manx Museum in Douglas.

Social History Curator Matthew Richardson said the display is the culmination of two years of research.

He said: "The Isle of Man became the second largest settlement of internees in the British Isles during WW1- there were 25,000 Germans, Austrians and Turks brought to the island and held at Knockaloe- this had an enormous impact on island life."
