Isle of Man Air Traffic Control has issued a warning about the use of drones during a Red Arrows display.

A six-mile (10km) no-fly zone has been put in place over Douglas between 19:25 and 20:05 BST as the display is held for the TT Festival.

The warning follows a complete ban on drones during the Isle of Man TT races.

Police said anyone found using the unmanned aircraft will face a fine of up to £2,500 and could have their drone seized or destroyed.

An earlier display by the RAF aerobatic team for the Ramsey Sprint was cancelled due to a change in the racing schedule.
