  4. Call for a more 'progressive' tax system

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    Guernsey Deputy Matt Fallaize says broadening the island's tax base is vital.

    Next week politicians will debate a range of options including those from Deputy Emlie Yerby who wants to see banded income tax rates which go above the 20% barrier.

    There's concern about an over-reliance on income tax, given an ageing population will mean a smaller working population to support those in retirement.

    Deputy Fallaize believes islanders would be prepared to accept a more "progressive" tax system but there's no appetite to debate it in the States.

    Quote Message: Let's say a higher band of income tax of 22p in the pound. I think there would be some appetite in the community at least to debate that. I think there was very much less appetite to debate that in the States." from Deputy Matt Fallaize

  5. Archaeologists to return to 'exciting' Alderney site

    BBC News Online

    A team from Guernsey Museum excavating a Roman burial site in Alderney plan to return on Thursday after a series of "exciting" finds.

    Dr Jason Monaghan said the significance of the site became increasingly apparent as they made a number of additional discoveries after a skull was found last week, thought to date from Roman times.

    In addition, two other bodies were located, along with possible burial cists or walls.

    "These burials are very exciting archeologically," he said.

    "Their fresh state means we can get useful scientific data and we will probably send for carbon-14 dating."

    The Chief Officer of Guernsey's St John Ambulance and Rescue has said funding for the service should match an increasing demand.

    St John is beginning negotiations on a new contract with the States of Guernsey, with the current agreement running out in 2018.

    The service currently gets a 2.6 million pound grant and makes up the difference from subscriptions and donations.

    Chief officer Jon Beausire said there's been a 10% increase in emergency calls over past two years, and a further 4% increase so far this year.

    Jersey Police say they have arrested three people after the sudden death of 18-year-old Kyle Pringle, who is suspected to have taken a strong ecstasy tablet.

    Police said: "Three associated arrests have been made and a quantity of 'Ikea' branded ecstasy tablets have been seized.

    "We strongly advise members of the public not to take these tablets in the interests of their health."

    Anyone who takes the tablets and becomes unwell is urged to seek medication attention through the accident and emergency department or their GP.

    Mr Pringle, from St Helier, died just before 06:30 on Saturday. Police said evidence at the time suggested he died after taking the drug.

    Police had urged islanders not to take the tablets, which are yellow and blue with the word IKEA stamped on them.

  12. 'Act quickly' on Jerriais - Cambridge academic

    BBC Radio Jersey

    A Cambridge academic has said Jersey needs to act quickly to save its native language.

    Jerriais is an ancient language which pre-dates standard modern French, and according to Professor Mari Jones, has important lessons for language students.

    She was pleased the States are preparing to spend up to £150,000 on teaching the language to children and adults.

    The Jerriais pathway plan includes half-hour lessons during the school day for primary school pupils and classes in secondary schools.

    Quote Message: We're so lucky to have all this in such a little island, and such a vibrant community of speakers, who are speaking Jerriais every day." from Dr Mari Jones

  14. Sudden teen death: Police name man who 'may have taken 'Ikea' ecstasy tablets'

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Jersey police have said 18-year-old Kyle Pringle, of St Helier, may have died after taking ecstasy tablets.

    The cause of death is still subject to toxicology reports and a post-mortem, but police say evidence at this time suggests the death is a result of taking “Ikea” ecstasy tablets. The force had warned the public about the drug on Saturday.

    Police were notified of the sudden death at the Jersey General Hospital just before 06:30 on Saturday.

    The man’s family have been notified, and three associated arrests have been made and a quantity of “Ikea” branded ecstasy tablets have been seized.

    Jersey's top tennis player Scott Clayton says he is unsure when he will next compete at an Island Games, as he prioritises his professional ranking.

    The 23-year-old has opted to miss this year's Island Games and last week made his bow at Challenger Tour level in doubles.

    Scott Clayton

    "Things like the Island Games will have to take a back seat," Clayton told BBC Radio Jersey.

    "That's not me undermining the Island Games at all. I think it's a great event, it's fantastic to be part of a big team and have the camaraderie."

    Public health authorities in both Guernsey and Jersey have issued advice about coping with the hot weather.

    Five people have been admitted to Guernsey's Emergency Department within the last 24 hours with heat related conditions. Temperatures are expected to reach 30C in Jersey.

    Here's the official advice from Guernsey's Health and Social Care Committee:

    • Look out for others, especially older people, young children and babies and those with underlying health conditions
    • Close curtains on rooms that face the sun to keep indoor spaces cooler and remember it might be cooler outdoors than indoors
    • Drink plenty of water as sugary, alcoholic and caffeinated drinks can make you more dehydrated
    • Never leave anyone in a closed, parked vehicle, especially infants, young children or animals
    • Try to keep out of the sun between 11:00 and 15:00
    • Walk in the shade, apply sunscreen and wear a hat, if you have to go out in the heat
    • Avoid physical exertion in the hottest parts of the day
    • Wear light, loose fitting cotton clothes
