Drifting snow and surface water are continuing to cause problems on roads across the Isle of Man.

The Mountain Road, between the Bungalow to Ramsey Hairpin, is among four routes which remain closed to motorists.

The Department of Infrastructure said it was working hard to overcome issues at several locations and would review the closures later.

Five further roads, including the Mountain Road from the Bungalow to the Creg-ny-Baa, were reopened on Monday.

According to a department spokesman, Benn-i-pott Road, from Brandywell Cottage to the Mountain Road remains impassable due to "large snow drifts" .

Sleau Whallian Road and Bayrauye Road, from St Marks to Ballamodha, are both closed due to "substantial damage caused by excessive surface water".

The Sulby Glen Road from Tholt-y-Will to the Mountain Road, Injebreck Road, Barragarrow crossroads to Brandywell Cottage and Druidale Road all reopened at 12:00 GMT.

Over the weekend numerous roads across the island were closed due to flooding caused by heavy rain and melting snow.

Police advised motorists to "drive with care".

A list of road closures is available on the Isle of Man Constabulary Facebook page.
