Reservoirs on the Isle of Man are being monitored "very closely" after a further drop in water levels, says the Manx water authority.

Since July, the water levels in each of the island's four reservoirs have fallen, in Sulby from 78% to 74% and in Clypse from 65% to 53%.

Kerrowdhoo and West Baldwin have seen a fall of 15% and 9% respectively.

Authority chief, Peter Winstanley said customers are asked to use water wisely as no significant rainfall is forecast.
