The Chief Minister has announced he's retiring.

Tony Brown has confirmed he won't be standing in the House of Keys election

He says it was a tough decision that he's not taken lightly.

Earlier this month, Mr Brown pulled out of plans to stand for election to the President of Tynwald role.

He's represented Castletown in the House of Keys for 30 years, having been a commissioner before that.

Three candidates have already come forward in the constituency for September's General Election.
