Former servicemen from the Isle of Man who were exposed to radiation during nuclear tests in the South Pacific are to receive compensation.
Eight Manx veterans were affected by the tests
Eight Manx veterans who were on Christmas Island during the tests in the 1950s will get about £8,000 each.
The money is being provided by the Isle of Man government, which voted for the payments in Tynwald last month.
About 700 veterans - including 300 from New Zealand and Fiji - are suing the UK government for compensation.
The nuclear devices were tested on Christmas Island, in the Pacific Ocean, in the 1950s.
Veterans claim there is a higher incidence of cancer, deformities and skin problems among the group and their families as a result.
The Tynwald motion was put forward by Eddie Lowey MLC (Member of the Legislative Parliament).
