Fifty people who died in the Summerland fire disaster have been remembered 40 years after the Isle of Man tragedy.

About 3,000 holidaymakers were inside the leisure complex in Douglas when fire swept through the building on 2 August 1973.

A permanent memorial inscribed with the names of the victims was unveiled at a service in Douglas on Friday.
