Thousands walk to Tower of Refuge in Douglas Harbour

2 April 2014 Last updated at 20:28 BST

More than 3,400 people took part in a guided walk to the Isle of Man's Tower of Refuge in aid of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

The tower, built on Conister Rock in Douglas in 1832, was the idea of Sir William Hillary, founder of the RNLI.

The Douglas landmark can only be reached on foot during certain tidal conditions twice a year.

Richard Mylchreest took the rare opportunity to propose to his girlfriend.
