  1. Vehicle damage in Guernsey prompts police investigation

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    Guernsey Police are investigating what they're calling a "spate" of damage and tampering to vehicles around Le Courtil Portier Estate in St Andrew. 

    A grey car, parked outside the estate had a deep scratch on the bonnet, while another suffered "extensive damage". Both vehicles were left with raised windscreen wipers, police said.

    Residents and members of the public are asked to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity to Guernsey Police.

    Officers said the damage occurred between 19:00 on Saturday and 06:30 on Sunday.

  2. Former States member calls for cheaper hospital build option

    BBC Radio Jersey

    A retired States member says Jersey's government should look for builders in Europe for the new hospital. 

    The former Constable and Deputy of St John, Phil Rondel thinks it would be cheaper. 

    The States is due to debate how to fund the new hospital today and Mr Rondel believes they need to consider looking at options beyond Jersey and the UK to get the best deal.

    The president of the Jersey Driving Instructors Association has said he will not support calls to force people over the age of 70 to take an annual driving test. 

    In the UK more than 250,000 people have backed a petition asking for a change in the law after a woman was killed by an elderly motorist who hit the accelerator pedal instead of the brake.

    More than £2,000 has been raised to pay for the body of a Portuguese woman, who was killed in Jersey, to be flown back to Portugal. 

    Ana Rebelo was found dead at her home in Victoria Street, St Helier, earlier this month and police launched a murder investigation. 

    A collection at St Thomas' Church was started for her family at the Good Friday service.

    A spokesperson said the timing of Easter around extreme low tides increases the risk of problems every year. 

    An engine problem with the Condor Liberation on Good Friday disrupted travel between Poole, Guernsey and Jersey.  

    Although fixed by Saturday, Condor said tidal restrictions and crew hours meant it had to revise its schedule for Easter Sunday and Monday, with delays of up to six-and-a-half hours.
