The Manx public is being urged to recognise the signs of a stroke.

Noble's Hospital and the Isle of Man Ambulance Service have been raising awareness of FAST - face, arms, speech and time to call an ambulance.

The Manx Stroke Foundation has also been involved in the campaign.

A roadshow held in Port Erin allowed over 150 people to learn about stroke, and have their blood pressure tested.

Health Minister David Anderson says more roadshows are planned for the future [play clip]
