Police officers suspended

Two police officers from the Isle of Man have been suspended from duty after an incident in Manchester.

The detective constables were interviewed by Manchester police after a night out in the city centre, said to have ended when one jumped through the lavatory window of a restaurant to avoid paying his bill. They are also alleged to have been involved in a street brawl after leaving a nightclub.

Manx chief constable Robin Oak said the temporary suspension was "in accordance with normal practice".
