The clean-up operation is underway after ex-Hurricane Ophelia hit the Island.

Around 100 trees fell across the Island, while waves crashed over seawalls and the roof partially came off the Palace Hotel.

Power lines came down in a number of areas, resulting in some homes being left without power for several hours.

The emergency services, Department of Infrastructure and Manx Utilities were out throughout yesterday evening clearing up debris as the worst of the weather hit.

Saddle Road, Tromode Road and Mount Rule Road all remain closed as they are still blocked.
