"Heavy snow fall" has caused the closure of the Mountain Road in the Isle of Man.

The route between the Lheanney Road near Ramsey Hairpin and Creg ny Baa was closed at 10:00 GMT on Wednesday.

The Isle of Man Constabulary said it will review the closure no later than 16:00.

The move follows an early morning police warning about "heavy snowfall" on the high ground and a minor accident near the Black Hut area.

The Isle of Man Met Office said the rain and snow is expected to peter out during Wednesday.
