Isle of Man hit by flash floods

Fire crews dealt with more than 60 cases of localised flooding in the Isle of Man on Thursday after more than an inch of rain fell in a matter of hours.

Station officer John Bellis said: "It was a busy night with everyone pulling together to help out."

The Colby Glen pub was forced to close at lunchtime to clean up. Bartender Nathan Scott said: "It all happened in the space of 20 minutes, it was incredible really."
