UK pro-life group Abort67 have returned to the Isle of Man to protest outside the government buildings in Douglas.

Despite complaints by some residents, the group aim to highlight their views while the House of Keys discusses abortion law reform this month.

The group have said they will be on-island until January 24th and wear body cameras to deter threats from locals.

MHK Dr Alex Allinson has spent a year working on proposals for a new abortion Bill, updating the current Termination of Pregnancy Act 1995.
