A major renovation project at a church in Jersey is about six months behind schedule, the island's dean says.

The work on the town church in St Helier includes installing new lights, heating and flooring.

It had been hoped the work would be complete in time for the arrival of the new lieutenant governor in September.

But the dean, the Very Reverend Bob Key, said he hoped most of the project would be finished in time for Christmas services.

The work also includes restoring a stained glass window in memory of the island's patron saint, Saint Helier.

The service for new the lieutenant governor, Sir John McColl, is due in September when he takes over from the incumbent, Lieutenant-General Andrew Ridgway.

It is to be held in St Paul's Church instead.

The lieutenant governor is the personal representative of the Queen in Jersey.
