UPDATED SATURDAY 11:25*

MP Andrew Turner has been re-adopted as the Conservative candidate for the Isle of Wight for the next general election.

The decision followed a meeting of the Isle of Wight Conservative Association executive tonight (Friday).

All voting members of the executive attended, however a breakdown of the vote has not been given, due to Conservative Association rules.

Following the meeting, Isle of Wight Conservative Association branch chairman Alan Wells congratulated Mr Turner.

The election is due to take place on May 7, 2015.

*Mr Wells initially told the CP Mr Turner indicated he would stand in that election, but that would be his last term in office. However, Mr Wells later qualified this, saying Mr Turner would make a final decision during the next parliament.
