A group of people accused of being involved in a voting scam during last year's Douglas East by-election deny any wrongdoing.

All seven defendants pleaded not guilty, meaning the case will now go to trial.

Charles Lewin from Crosby, Kerry Rothwell and Catherine Liggins, both from Onchan, face six charges of conspiracy.

Gale Corrin is charged with three conspiracy offences.

Marc Bonser, Mark Weir and Geoffrey Collister face charges of forging documents with intent to deceive.

They'll be back in court for a pre-trial hearing in March, with a trial likely to take place next September.

All seven were bailed.
