Manx politicians will stand "shoulder to shoulder with parliamentarians in the UK" following the Westminster attack, Tynwald's president has said.

Eight arrests have been made following the attack in London on Wednesday that left four dead and at least 40 injured.

Steve Rodan said together, the Isle of Man and the UK would resist "such acts of extremist hostility".

He also offered "profound sympathy" to the families of the victims "of the shocking terrorist attack".

"Members of Tynwald and the people of the Isle of Man deplore this assault on the seat of parliamentary democracy at Westminster, with the attendant loss of life and terrible injury to innocent people," he added.
