Candidates for the upcoming Senatorial By-Election on 7 September have declared themselves.

There are 11 candidates for the one vacant seat with all but one standing as an independent.

The election was called after former Senator Dr Zoe Cameron resigned on 12 July over a "culture of denial" in the States of Jersey.

The successful candidate will hold an island wide mandate, representing all of Jersey's 100,000 residents.
