Is one celebrating the Royal Wedding?

Fri, 29 Apr 2011

After weeks of hype, the Royal Wedding day is upon us and it seems the Isle of Man hasn't escaped the wedding fever.


Wills and Kate tied the knot earlier at Westminster Abbey.


A number of communities around the Island will be celebrating the marriage with street parties today.


There'll be eight road closures in place.


They'll be in areas of Douglas, Onchan, Castletown and Glen Vine.


The Ballamodha to St Marks Road and Reayrt ny Chrink in Crosby will also close.


Full details are on the government's website.


Drivers who breach the road closure orders could be looking at a £2,500 fine.


Typically, not everyone is getting behind the celebrations today.


There've been the usual questions asked about the relevance, the amount of money that's been spent on the wedding and the cost to the economy of the extra bank holiday.
