Controversial plans to build a mobile phone mast in slotxo a conservation area in the Manx capital have been approved.
The 15 metre (49 foot) pole will be erected at a vacant plot on Woodbourne Lane in Douglas by telecoms company Sure.
Planners approved the move despite opposition from some local residents and politicians.

Sure's chief executive Mike Phillips said the decision would help to "future-proof the island's mobile technologies including 5G".
