Armed Forces Day celebrations today

Parade, fun fair and flypast in Douglas

An RAF Hawk aircraft is due to conduct a flypast later today to mark Armed Forces Day on the Isle of Man (Sunday, 16 June).

However, recent heavy rain and forecast poor weather conditions have forced the outside celebrations at the Villa Marina Gardens to be called off.

A parade is still expected to march from Regent Street to the Villa Marina Colonnade at 2pm where the Lieutenant Governor will take the salute followed by an address and awards presentation inside the Villa's Royal Hall.

The RAF spectacle will take place an hour later at 3pm.
