Isle of Man children's service scrutinised

Children's services in the Isle of Man will be scrutinised by a team of seven independent inspectors this autumn.

A Manx government spokesman said the findings will be made public when a report is presented to Tynwald in 2014.

The evaluation, which will focus on child protection, involves the inspectors speaking directly to children and their families.

It will be conducted by the Scottish Government's Care Inspectorate over two weeks during September and October.
