Guernsey introduces new vetting scheme

Full criminal records bureau checks have been introduced for people working with children or vulnerable adults in Guernsey.

Previously those checks were carried out by the island's police, but a new organisation called the Guernsey Vetting Bureau has replaced them.

Claire Ely, bureau spokesperson, said the old system was not enough.

She said: "The aim is to make sure vulnerable groups and children in our community have the best protection."
