Voters in the Isle of Man capital have elected former mayor Elizabeth Quirk to fill a vacant seat on Douglas council.

Mrs Quirk received 280 votes (68%), 148 more than her only rival for the seat Thomas Gelling.

The by-election was called after Alan Quirk resigned from the local authority in September.

There were three spoilt papers and the turnout was just 11.2% at Willaston Methodist Church.
