Basking shark sightings in Manx waters are the "lowest they've ever been" according to the Manx Basking Shark Watch (MBSW).

Marine biologist Jackie Hall says the sightings are the lowest recorded since the MBSW was established in 2005.

So far this year, 41 sightings have been recorded, compared with more than 800 on a busy year.
