Have your say

A story in the Manx Independent incorrectly stated that the deemster presiding over the original trial of Manx advocate Jenny Holt was Deemster Birkett.

In fact the deemster in Miss Holt’s original trial was Deemster David Turner.

It was Deemster Turner who was criticised by the appeal judge in Privy Council Lord Hughes, not Deemster Birkett.

Isle of Man Newspapers apologises unreservedly for the error.
