Both legal and voluntary work praised

Former First Deemster William Cain CBE has died aged 85 years-old.

As well as a long legal career, he got involved in voluntary work and was a founding member of the Manx Wildlife Trust of which he was chairman for 36 years.

Among other achievements, he negotiated the extension of Manx territorial waters to 12 miles when he was attorney general.

The Island's first Chief Minister Sir Miles Walker says William Cain cared passionately about the Isle of Man.
