A proposal to allow emergency service vehicle drivers to exceed speed limits while training has been rejected by the States of Guernsey.

Members rejected the proposal from the Home Department over fears about the potential risks for other road users.

Emergency service drivers are currently sent to the UK for driver training.

Deputy Barry Brehaut, a member of the Environment Department, said although the move would have saved money, the risks outweighed the benefits.
