Life size photographs of children will be used in a new road safety campaign in the Isle of Man.

The "Flatkidz" idea follows the use of "PC Flat", a cut out policeman with a speed camera used to slow down motorists on the island.

PC Andy Lloyd said: "Motorists travelling too quick will intuitively slow down when they see a child playing."

The life size cut outs will initially be seen around the Douglas area.

If successful the concept will be used across the island, a police spokesman said.
