Drivers asked to switch off engines for two minutes' silence

Tue, 08 Nov 2011

The Island will twice observe two minutes' silence this week as Britain remembers people who have lost their lives in the wars.

The first will be at 11am on Friday - the next at the same time on remembrance Sunday.

Local authorities have been asked to make arrangements to give precise warnings at the start and finish of each silence.

Members of the public are requested to co-operate and it's also hoped that motorists will stop their engines to observe the commemorations, if it's safe for them to do so.

The Isle of Man National Service of Remembrance will be held at the Royal Chapel in St Johns at 3pm on Sunday.
