Isle of Man upper chamber seat vacant after ballot

An empty seat in the House of Keys' upper chamber remains unfilled after an election failed to return a candidate.

Four candidates were nominated for the seat on the Isle of Man's Legislative Council, but none received the 13 votes required from existing members to win.

Six rounds of voting were held during the election, which is the second unsuccessful ballot to have been held this year.

Fresh nominations must now be submitted by 7 June for a third election.
