Work completed on Isle of Man's new £2.8m police custody block

Building work has been completed on a new multi-million pound custody block at the Isle of Man's police headquarters in Douglas.

The home affairs department was allocated £2.8m to construct a 20-cell facility to replace the existing 40-year-old block at Lord Street station, which has been deemed unfit for purpose.

Lord Street is one of three police stations to close in the next year due to cuts within the constabulary budget.

The new facility will open in April.
