A man's body has been found on a remote beach on the west coast of the Isle of Man, police have said.

Along with the coastguard and lifeboat, police officers were called to an area south of Niarbyl on Monday at about 21:00 BST.

The body was recovered and an investigation has been launched to establish the man's identity.

A police spokeswoman said a post-mortem examination is due to be conducted later this week.
