Deadly creature washed up on Manx shores

The public is being warned not to touch a deadly creature which washed up on Manx beaches this week.

The Portuguese Man of War appeared at Langness in Castletown and on Douglas shores.

The blue coloured non-jellyfish has 30cm long tentacles which can deliver a painful, and possibly fatal sting.

Strandings are uncommon, but last appeared in 2009 and 1954 - both after big storms.
