Tributes are being paid to a former MHK and government minister who died this morning.

57-year-old Martyn Quayle passed away in a Liverpool hospital after suffering head injuries in a fall last week.

He represented Middle between 2001 and 2011 - in that time he held ministerial positions in the Department of Home Affairs, Tourism and Leisure and Health and Social Care.

Marown Parish Commissioners say their 'heartfelt sympathies and deepest condolences' go out to his family - whilst current Home Affairs Minister Juan Watterson has described him as a 'real gentleman of Manx politics'.

Chief Constable Gary Roberts has described his death as 'tragic' and says he was a 'good man who cared about the Isle of Man'.
