THE partner of Isle of Wight Conservative MP Andrew Turner has been barred from the party.

Carole Dennett, who is Mr Turner's partner and parliamentary assistant, was denied membership of the party at a meeting of the Isle of Wight Conservative Association executive last night (Friday).

Ms Dennett and association chairman Alan Wells declined to comment this morning.

Mr Wells said: "It is an internal Conservative matter and I cannot discuss it publicly."

He confirmed the meeting was one of four such regular meetings held each year and almost all 40 members of the executive were present.

It is understood that Ms Dennett had applied to rejoin the association and the party after her membership had lapsed.
