Roof, telecoms pole damaged by storm

Police are asking the public to avoid Castletown promenade after part of a roof came off a building.

Officers are warning that loose slates could also fall, making it unsafe for people to be in the area.

The owner of the building has been made aware.

Meanwhile, Manx Utilities have been investigating reports of power cuts in St Johhn's and the Eairy [pron: Eerie], while a telecoms mast is also down at the latter.

The effects of Storm Barbara are due to ease from 3pm.
