Clarkson in footpath defeat
Bookmark and Share
Jeremy Clarkson has been ordered to open a footpath that he had blocked off around a property he owns on the Isle of Man.

The Top Gear presenter owns a clifftop lighthouse on the Langness Peninsula and had re-routed the path, complaining that people had been infringing his privacy.

However, the Public Rights Of Way Langness (Prowl) group said that the path had been used for 21 years and while not a public right of way, it was an established route for people to go walking along and an inquiry has ruled in the group's favour.

Enquiry inspector Roy Hickey found that Prowl had offered "strong and persuasive" arguments to support their case.

Mr Clarkson has 28 days to appeal against the ruling if he wishes.

Those walking on the Isle of Man can enjoy a range of coastal and hilly scenery.

Its highest point is Snaefell, at 2,036 ft (621 m).
