Commissioner quits board after dog bite row

Castletown Commissioners following the 2021 Local Authority Elections

Carol Quine resigns from local authority with immediate effect

A Castletown Commissioner has resigned from the board and stepped down as chairman.

The local authority says Carol Quine has resigned with immediate effect.

It comes following a recent vote of no confidence in Miss Quine after a Castletown Commissioners' employee was bitten by her dog.

The remaining members will meet on 1 November to elect a new chairman, while plans to elect a new commissioner will be announced in due course.
