Charity urges residents to look out for basking sharks

Residents are being called upon to let wildlife organisations know if they spot any basking sharks in Manx waters.

The Manx Wildlife Trust says it's been a rather poor year for sightings of the creatures with only six recorded around the Island so far.

As a result, the trust is hoping anyone who's out and about around the coasts - whether on boat or land - can take an extra minute to see if they can spot any of the animals.

MWT adds any sightings can be sent to the Manx Basking Shark Watch website.
