Landslide in Port St. Mary – No, not politics, a real one

That’s where we used to roll Easter Eggs and hold the Regatta Fancy Dress. Wow!

11 homes were evacuated in Port St Mary last night following a landslide in the Happy Valley area.  The main road into and out of the village was closed from its junction with Victoria Road to its junction with the Bay View Hotel and, as a precaution, 11 properties were evacuated, the occupants initially taken to Port St Mary town hall.

In addition to the Emergency Services staff, personnel from the Department of Transport and the Civil Defence (under the guidance of the Emergency Planning Officer) attended to inspect and assess the land and to co-ordinate the evacuation and safe refuge of property occupants disturbed.
