Residents of an Isle of Man village will be consulted over plans to rebuild an historic bridge which collapsed during flash flooding last year.

The 200-year-old structure collapsed under the weight of a double-decker bus during torrential rain last December.

The bus was not carrying passengers at the time and the driver escaped unhurt.

The Isle of Man government said a series of four design possibilities would go on display in Laxey Commissioner's office on Tuesday.

Members of the public are invited to give feedback to government representatives at the event.
