Jersey's first Transylvanian shop opens in St Helier

In one small area of St Helier in Jersey there are more than 15 shops targeting people of different nationalities.

Among them are Thai, Portuguese, Polish, French, English and Italian shops and restaurants.

States figures show the number of Portuguese, Romanian, Polish, English and Irish people in Jersey has increased dramatically over the last decade.

BBC Radio Jersey's Francine Jordan-Higgins went to Colomberie in St Helier to look at the links to home made by people arriving in the island.
