The island’s new Lieutenant Governor Lieutenant General Sir John Lorimer and his wife Lady Philippa Lorimer have arrived on the island.

They were welcomed to Government House by First Deemster Andrew Corlett and a select few guests ahead of Sir John’s swearing in on Wednesday afternoon. Sir John, who we learnt like Mr Corlett is a Leeds United fan, spoke briefly about his appointment.

Sir John will be sworn in on Wednesday afternoon.
