A service to remember those who lost their lives when a Steam Packet ferry sank at Dunkirk will be held next week.

Port St Mary Commissioners will host the event to commemorate the Mona's Queen III next Wednesday from 7pm.

The vessel was sunk by a mine on May 29, 1940 after rescuing 1,200 troops from Dunkirk - 24 of her crew lost their lives.

The memorial service will take place at the monument at Kallow Point which bears the ferry's anchor.
