    BBC News Online

    The St Helier Lifeboat crew, who resigned en masse after the dismissal of their coxswain Andy Hibbs, will return to work on Monday.

    The crew said they were "satisfied" with Mr Hibbs reinstatement and the full formal apology provided to him.

    They added they had been "humbled" by the support shown by islanders and Jersey's Council of Ministers throughout the ongoing appeal process.

    BBC News Online

    Jersey's new hospital could be eight stories high and it should be ready for people to be treated by 2025.

    That's from the health minister speaking as the planning application was lodged today.

    Hospital Plan

    Plans for the new £400m hospital will be subject to a public consultation and possible independent inquiry, but Senator Andrew Green says work should start in January 2019.

    The debate on funding the new hospital is set for November and if approved there will be a more detailed planning application.

    In 2019 they will begin demolishing existing buildings with building work on the new hospital starting in January 2020.

  8. Nine left without a home due to fire safety risk

    Nine people had to leave their homes on Tuesday after Jersey's fire service ruled the building was not safe.

    Dunell House

    Officers inspected Dunell House in St Helier on Tuesday and found a serious lack of fire precautions. Tenants had to leave the properly immediately until it had been brought up to minimum standards.

    States of Jersey Fire and Rescue said the fire risk was so serious its use as living accommodation "should be prohibited".

    Mark James, from the fire service, says so far this year six properties have been closed using the same powers.

    States of Guernsey chamber exterior

    As some of the island's top athletes compete in Gotland, Guernsey's politicians have agreed to re-instating a sport strategy for the island.

    It's after the committee responsible had earlier omitted it from future plans.

    President of Guernsey's Education, Sport and Culture Committee Paul Le Pelley admitted it was a mistake to drop the Sports Strategy as part of the Bailiwick's Policy and Resource Plan.

    He apologised for allowing for it being removed from his committee's future priorities, with the States backing its re-reinstatement in the form of an amendment.

    Approval of the plan as a whole is still subject to a further States vote.

  10. Gold for Guernsey men in 4x100m Freestyle Relay

    Guernsey women's 4x100m Medley Relay team have won bronze, after a disqualification was withdrawn.

    Courtney Butcher, Laura Le Cras, Orla Rabey, and Tatiana Tostevin combined to finish in 4:21:06.

    They were beaten by the Faroes (4:15:73) and the Isle of Man (4:16:34).

  16. Alderney win is island side's best ever result

    Alderney footballers' 3-0 victory over the Falkland Islands sees them secure 15th place in the competition.

    It's the side's first win since they beat Saaremaa 1-0 in 2003.

    Our sports reporter James Law has worked that out as 5,109 days between victories!

    Before today, 1-0 was their best result ever - the only other time they achieved that scoreline was against Guernsey in the Muratti final in 1920.
