The government is offering financial support for those affected by last weeks floods in Laxey.

An ex gratia payment of £500 is being made available to assist with immediate recovery costs such as accommodation and other expenses.

The major incident last Tuesday (October 1) devastated parts of the town leaving people trapped in their homes, around 150 properties lost power and the area temporarily cut off by the water levels.

Those who own properties in Laxey which were impacted are being invited to submit a claim immediately by visiting the dedicated Laxey Flooding page on the government website.
