Bus fares on the Isle of Man are to rise by an average of 14% from Saturday.

Passengers travelling up to three stops, who previously paid 50p for a ticket, will have to pay an extra 10p.

Those making longer journeys which previously cost £3.20 will pay an extra 20p.

Operator Bus Vannin, which is run by the island's department of community, culture and leisure, blamed increased costs for the fare rises.

The department said the changes will also affect the 12-journey Manx Rider tickets.

More information on the new prices is available on the Isle of Man government website.
