Guernsey cemetery garden plans refused

Plans for a recreational garden to be developed on the site of a Guernsey cemetery are turned down.
The application to alter the Brothers' Cemetery, from the Constables of St Peter Port, was rejected by the island's Ecclesiastical Court.
A survey of the tombs and vaults in the grounds will now be carried out by the States of Guernsey's archaeologist.
Dennis Le Moignan, Junior Constable for St Peter Port, said he reluctantly accepted the decision.
He said work to complete the survey and an accompanying report would start straight away.
