Thomas the Tank Engine leaves the Isle of Man

Thomas the Tank Engine looks set to leave his Isle of Man home in the latest series of his TV show.

Producers have revealed he'll leave the Island of Sodor - which was based on the Isle of Man - to travel the world.

They say it's to give the character new adventures abroad when the next series airs in 2018.

Reverend Wilbert Audry set his books in Sodor, named for the Isle of Man's diocese of Sodor and Man, and the movie Thomas and the Magic Railroad was filmed here.
