Candidate withdraws from council by-election

Murrays Ward will still head to the polls on June 16

A candidate in this month's Douglas Council by-election has announced he's no longer standing in the contest.

Three candidates had come forward to fill the one vacancy in Murrays Ward - Falk Horning, Kieran Lavery and Keith Teare.

Mr Teare - who's been a councillor before - has now withdrawn from the race.

He's cited the timing of the election as the reason for his withdrawal.

As it stands Douglas will still go to the polls on June 16.
