An election in St Helier to find two people to look after parish accounts saw a turnout of just over 2.5%.

Clive Barton was re-elected as Procureur du Bien Publique in St Helier for a fifth term and will be joined by Peter Pearce.

The only other candidate for the job was Geraint Jennings who missed out by 90 votes.

Just 470 people voted at the Town Hall on Wednesday out of a possible 18,000 on the electoral roll.
