Manx team to attend Delhi games after safety fears

The Manx Commonwealth Games Association (CGA) has decided to send a team to this year's Delhi games after India gave assurances over security.

Organisation behind the games, which opens on 3 October, has been under scrutiny since bomb blasts at a Bangalore cricket match on 17 April.

The announcement follows England's confirmation on Wednesday that it would be sending a team.

The CGA's Tonia Lushington said she was confident the team would remain safe.

"We are very positive that there's a high level of security going on in India," she said.

"They're getting very professional advice about security and we're very happy that everything is in place for a great games."
