Young drivers in the west of the Island are being persuaded to join the latest Manx Motor Meet.

16-25-year-olds are invited to attend the event at Marine Parade in Peel on Friday with their vehicles to improve their driving skills.

It's a joint effort between the Isle of Man Constabulary, youth services and other Island-based organisations to encourage safe driving and reduce serious incidents on the roads.
