A new member of the Isle of Man's House of Keys has been sworn in at a special ceremony in Tynwald.

Chris Robertshaw was elected to represent Douglas East in a by-election on 27 May.

The former managing director of the Sefton Hotel stood as an independent candidate and won the seat with 388 votes.

The seat was made vacant when Phil Braidwood was elected to the Legislative Council.

House of Keys speaker Steve Rodan said he expected Mr Robertshaw's "own particular experience of commercial and public life in the Isle of Man" to benefit the House and his constituents.
