  2. Risk meeting after London attack

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    Guernsey's Strategic Co-ordinating Group, which includes all emergency services and States bodies, has met this morning to assess the level of risk islanders face in the wake of the London attack.

    A spokeswoman for law enforcement said they'll continue to hold regular risk assessment meetings to ensure that islanders are protected "proportionately to the current threat".

    Islanders may notice an increased presence of uniformed officers at the ports – which may include armed firearms officers. Heightened security checks will, they say, continue to be carried out on people arriving in the island.

    These measures have been in place since the Paris attacks in November 2015.

    Two months on from the suspicious death of 51-year-old Ana Rebelo, Jersey Police say they are still pursuing 95 lines of inquiry, including forensic work.

    A total of 240 separate lines of enquiry have been pursued.

    Two suspects remain on police bail, however, they say there is no suggestion that the public are at any risk.

  4. Police seek 'special arrangement' for walkers

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    Organisers of Guernsey's Saffrey Rotary Walk have said they will make sure an issue with parking fines doesn't happen again.

    On Saturday some walkers found tickets on their cars at North Beach after completing the 39-mile trek, even though they'd displayed notices saying they were taking part in the event.

    Guernsey Police have now revoked the fines as a gesture of goodwill but say a special arrangement should be made in future.

    Sarah-Jayne Laine at the parade

    The story of Joey the donkey, the mascot who led Guernsey's World War One fighting force off the island 100 years ago, has a special significance for Sarah-Jayne Laine.

    She wrote a book about the animal and her great grandfather, Nick Mahy, a soldier who served in the force.

    It charts Joey's journey from being chosen as the mascot, travelling to Canterbury, and his return to Guernsey and when he later welcomed some of the soldiers home.

    In 1921 the donkey even met royalty when King George V reportedly "fondled" his ears.

    Armed police officer

    Islanders may notice an increased police presence at Bailiwick ports, according to a spokeswoman for law enforcement.

    It may include armed officers, which it said is not a response to any specific threat, but about public reassurance.

    Armed officers were at yesterday’s Royal Guernsey Light Infantry parade in St Peter Port and at the Seafront Sunday, which followed it.

  7. Rain and possible gales tonight

    BBC Weather

    The focus was on coastal areas as the police continue to look for Andrew Gilchrist - who's also known as Titch.

  9. Canadian pilot honoured in Guernsey

    BBC Channel Islands News

    A plaque's been unveiled in St Peter Port to commemorate a Canadian pilot whose plane crashed into Havelet Bay during a Second World War bombing raid.

    Flight Lieutenant John Walton Saville died when his Typhoon was shot down while leading a mission to destroy a German radar facility at Fort George. The success of the mission gave the combined allied forces a tactical advantage the following day on D-Day.

    This afternoon a short service of remembrance was held on Castle Pier in his honour.

  10. Concern over States leadership

    BBC Radio Jersey

    There's concern the decision of the Jersey chief minister to bring back Senator Philip Ozouf into the Council of Ministers is damaging Jersey's government.

    Senator Ozouf resigned as an assistant chief minister over the handling of a much-criticised fund for business start-ups. However, Senator Ian Gorst said a review had cleared him of blame.

    Deputy Judy Martin wants to know whether all Ministers approved Senator Ozouf's return, and plans to ask Senator Gorst about it in the States.

  11. Minimum wage - what will change?

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    Adults in Guernsey currently receive a minimum of £7.20 an hour with 16 to 17-year-olds eligible for £6.50 an hour.

    The Committee for Employment and Social Security is proposing a 30p rise in the adult rate, bringing it to £7.50 an hour, in line with the current UK rate.

    The rate for younger islanders could jump by 50p to £7.00 an hour.

    Any changes will come into effect in 2018.

    Employers and employee representative groups such as trade unions and staff associations have now been asked for their views ahead of a new rate being set.

  12. Islanders urged to 'stay vigilant'

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Jersey's Bailiff says islanders should stay vigilant in wake of the terror attack in central London at the weekend.

    William Bailhache says people should not become complacent - however this should not stop them enjoying themselves.

    Flags are flying at half-mast today and a book of condolence has been opened at the States building in the Royal Square.

    There will also be a one minute silence at 11:00 GMT on Tuesday, which coincides with the D-day minute's silence at the Cenotaph.

  13. Minimum wage views sought

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    People in Guernsey are being asked for their views on a 30p rise in the minimum wage, bringing it in line with the current UK rate.

    The Committee for Employment & Social Security is inviting people to complete a survey ahead of the change in rate, which comes into effect in 2018.

  14. 'Abandon' plans to change voting districts

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Jersey's politicians have been encouraged to keep the current parish-based system for voting in deputies, despite them already agreeing to move to a district system, similar to Guernsey.

    Voters who took part in surveys, public meetings or submitted comments on the matter were generally not in favour of the new system, with the majority of those surveyed saying they wanted a referendum on any changes.

    The States has already agreed in principle to reduce the number of deputies by one and to have them elected from six large voting districts. The changes will see two more deputies in St Helier, and just four for both St Saviour and St Martin, which becomes the new East Central District.

    Corporate Services Chairman Deputy John le Fondre has urged his colleagues not to vote in the changes. They face a challenge in the States this week.

    The president of France's La Manche Department, Philippe Bas, has thanked Guernsey for its contribution to World War One and the defence of his country.

    He spoke at an event to mark the departure of Guernsey's dedicated fighting force, the RGLI, 100 years ago. The force suffered heavy casualties, particularly at the Battle of Cambrai.

    He said he was "deeply moved" by the parade, which saw hundreds of islanders re-create the departure.
