All six people involved in a two-vehicle crash in Foxdale on Thursday, including three children, have been described as "stable" by police.

Insp Derek Flint said all are "stable in hospital".

Anyone who witnessed the collision is asked to contact police headquarters in Douglas.

Fire crews used cutting equipment to help free the driver and passenger of the blue van.
