Public hears from three of the four candidates

There was a good turn out at a requisition meeting last night, ahead of a by-election in Douglas tomorrow.

Last night candidates for Douglas South headed the political debate, which more than 50 people attended.

Only three of the four candidates spoke on the panel.

Amy Burns explained her absence in a letter read to the audience.

She said she was attending another meeting with constituents which would be 'more beneficial to her campaign'.

The other candidates are independents Bill Malarkey and Kurt Buchholz and Lib Van member Keith Fitton.
