Jurby Junk headed for scrap

It's been confirmed a popular Island tourist attraction is to close later this year.

Bric-a-brac warehouse Jurby Junk first opened in 1976, and found fame for its esoteric collection of knick-knacks and books.

But now founder Sheila Pixton has announced she's planning to shut up shop for the fnal time on Sunday, 15 October.

Concerns were raised by Ms Pixton last year over the costs of rent on the site, which were said to be rising above £30,000 per year.

It was put up for sale in 2013 with £200,000 price tag - no offers were accepted.
