Funchal is twinned with St Helier

The Jersey parish of St Helier has been officially twinned with the capital of Madeira, Funchal.

An agreement was signed by the Mayor of Funchal, Dr Miguel Albuquerque, and the St Helier Constable Simon Crowcroft on Tuesday.

Dr Albuquerque told the BBC a road in the Madeiran capital would be renamed after St Helier next year.
