Isle of Man's solar eclipse captured on film

Millions of people in the UK and northern Europe have observed spectacular scenes as the Moon passed between the Earth and the Sun.

Many people gathered on the Isle of Man to try to get a good view of the solar eclipse.

Gary Myers and his son Stuart took this video footage from Laxey Beach on the east coast.

Gary said: "My son Stuart missed the one in 1999 as he was in nursery. He was determined to see this one and we went out 'eclipse chasing' this morning. It was wonderful to see it that close up in the viewfinder."

More than 100 people gathered on the south coast of the island, at The Sound, but they were thwarted by the cloudy conditions.
