The Clarksons have failed in a bid to have Deemster Doyle banned from judging the outcome of their high court appeal against the finding of public rights of way on their land.

Jeremy and Francis Clarkson, who own part of the Langness peninsula, claimed the Island's First Deemster would be prejudiced as he's already presided in two judgments on the case.

In September last year, the Deemster awarded costs to the Department of Infrastructure, whilst in March he refused to hear more evidence from the Clarkson's.

However, Deemster Doyle ruled that there were not adequate grounds for his dismissal from the case.

Mr and Mrs Clarkson are appealing against the conclusion of a public enquiry, which stated that there are public rights of way at their home.
