Displaying items by tag: UK General Election

In the UK, ballot boxes for the final General Election constituency to announce its results are on their way to be counted after stormy conditions passed.

In the constituency of St. Ives (Cornwall), adverse weather had meant boats and a Royal Naval Air Service helicopter from the outer islands of the Isles of Scilly were unable to reach the main island of St Mary’s.

Andrew Walder, a skipper for Tresco Boats, ferried the final votes from St Martin’s and St Agnes this Friday morning after conditions had “much improved”.

For more the Irish Examiner reports including footage from onboard the inter-island boat trip.
