Serious crash closes Laxey road

The police say a road will be closed for several hours following a serious crash in Laxey earlier.

The emergency services are dealing with the incident, which happened near the Fairy Cottage Filling Station this morning.

The coast road is closed from Church Road to Captain's Hill, and is expected to stay shut for a considerable time.

Officers are urging members of the public to avoid the Lonan area and use the Creg ny Baa back road to access Laxey from Douglas.
