The jury in the Douglas East by-election trial heard yesterday how the election campaign was funded.

They were told head of Dandara, Dan Tynan, and Charles Lewin, pledged around £30,000 for the ultimately unsuccessful House of Keys attempt.

Charles Lewin has already admitted to three counts of election fraud.

The funding revelations came as the managing director of Heritage Homes, Seamus Nugent, gave evidence.

Four people are standing trial at Douglas Courthouse - Geoffrey Callister of Port Erin, Gail Corrin of Douglas, Catherine Liggins and Kerry Rothwell, both of Onchan.

All deny charges relating to voting irregularities in the by-election in 2010.
