Castletown Town Commissioners have added reflective strips around Market Square in a bid to help the visually impaired.

The strips have been retrofitted to items like benches and signposts to make them more visible.

One of the area's MHKs, Jason Moorhouse, described the move as a small change with a big impact for those with reduced vision.
