  2. 'Uneconomical' bus route 'important to passengers'

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    The amount of passengers on Guernsey's P2 bus route is increasing, according to a politician who has slammed calls to axe the route.

    Deputy David De Lisle said the service was too expensive considering the average passenger numbers were about seven on the route.

    The service started in November 2015 and was estimate to cost about £130,000 per year to run. It connects St Peter Port with Princess Elizabeth Hospital, Les Bourgs hospice, L'Aumone surgery and the Bridge.

    Deputy Barry Brehaut, head of the Committee for Environment and Infrastructure, said the service was being reviewed but was unlikely to be withdrawn as passenger numbers could rise.

    Mr Brehaut said the P2 route was important for those who used it, and passenger numbers could be built on.

    Quote Message: For the seven people who use the P2, whether to go the hopsital, to go to Les Bourgs or whether to go to the blood clinic that was, these people are using the service. If we're reaching out to get those people, and those people can participate, then that's a good thing." from Deputy Barry Brehaut

  3. Farmers look to stop flies feeding on Guernsey cows

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    Farmers in Guernsey say they are working hard to reduce the impact of huge numbers of flies among their herds.

    It is the thought the hot weather has led to more flies attacking cattle. The flies can feed up to 30 times a day, which farmers say can cause significant weight loss for a cow.

    James Watts, from the Guernsey Farmers' Association, said they expected flies every year, and sprayed their livestock and their enclosures with insect repellent.

    Quote Message: The flies will go for moisture really, so they’ll hang around their eyes, or if there’s any open sores it's very difficult for them to heal because the files won’t leave it alone. They’ll also hang around the cows’ teat, going for a droplet of milk. All these things could lead to the illness of a cow.” from James Watts

    For a comparison with humans about a perceived increase in insect bites, calls to the NHS helpline in the UK about bites are almost double the rate they normally are at this time of year. The increase in calls chimes with records of a heatwave.

  5. Theft from flat after forced entry in Guernsey

    Rob England

    BBC News Online

    Cash and personal belongings were taken from a flat in St Peter Port, police say.

    It happened between 02:30 and 19:30 on Tuesday 10 July along Le Bordage.

    Officers said the suspect "forced entry" into the flat, and have appealed for witnesses.

  6. Developers snubbed over flats' poor parking provision

    BBC Radio Jersey

    The Constable of St Helier has told a major developer to think again after it put forward plans for 52 flats with no parking spaces allocated.

    Dandara wants to knock down the old Kleinwort Benson House at Wests Centre to build a six-storey block.

    But while the planning application says it would have storage for bikes, there would be nowhere for residents to put cars.

    Constable Crowcroft said the parish roads committee considered the application recently, but sent the developer away to reconsider this part of the proposal.

    Quote Message: We think that St Helier residents have the same right of car ownership as those who live in St Mary. Why should we suffer when we want to use the car to go to France or to go out for the weekend? We don’t use our cars to commute but we still have a right to have them." from Constable Simon Crowcroft

  9. Guernsey 'needs to understand Alderney dependency issues'

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    Politicians from Guernsey and Alderney have clashed again over how dependent the islands are on one another.

    The vice president of Guernsey's Policy and Resources Committee, Lyndon Trott, said Alderney's dependency on Guernsey was growing, but James Dent, chairman of Alderney's Policy and Finance Committee, said the argument about the island costing Guernsey too much wais a "tired mantra".

    Guernsey are looking to review the 1948 agreement, which sets out the relationships between the two islands and was established in the years following the occupation of the Channel Islands during World War Two.

    Quote Message: Alderney does extremely well from the arrangement. The amount of outflows from social security contributions exceed the amount of inflows by over £2m a year. The dependency on Guernsey is growing, and that is something we need to understand.” from Deputy Lyndon Trott Guernsey Policy and Resources Committee

  13. Jersey blood donation service could reopen soon

    BBC Radio Jersey

    New blood donation facilities at Jersey's hospital could be opened sooner than expected, according to health bosses.

    The donation service in Jersey was suspended in February because the space it was using at the hospital was found to be too damp.


    Since then, the island has relied on supplies being flown in from Southampton twice a week.

    On at least one occasion, an emergency helicopter was called to Jersey when the airport was fogged in to deliver further supplies.

    Health authorities said plans to get the local donation scheme running again had been delayed, and it was not expected to open again until October.

    But now a hospital spokesman said they were putting the finishing touches to the new facilities, and had called some donors in to make sure it all ran smoothly.

    The site will be inspected later this month and, dependent on the results, could begin accepting regular donations soon after, the spokesman added.

    Rob England

    BBC News Online

    A 25mph speed limit has been proposed in Guernsey on roads thought to have a "higher concentration of residential properties, schools or amenities".

    The Committee for the Environment and Infrastructure said this will make roads safer for "vulnerable users" and encourage islanders to walk and cycle.

    The plans are the first stage of a "wider review" of existing speed limits, according to Deputy Barry Brehaut, the committee's president.

    Those looking to comment on the plans have been asked to contact Traffic and Highway Services.

    Which parishes will be affected?

    The States says, if passed, the 25mph limit would be applied to roads in:

  20. Islands' politicians 'reassure Brussels' amid Brexit chaos

    Rob England

    BBC News Online

    Following turmoil over Brexit negotiations in Westminster, politicians from the Channel Islands say they have "reassured" EU officials about the islands' future relationship with the union.

    Guernsey Chief Minister Gavin St Pier, and Jersey External Relations Minister Ian Gorst took part in a "joint visit" to Brussels on 11 and 12 July.

    A spokesman for both governments said the politicians discussed key issues with representatives of the EU's three main institutions: the European Council, the European Commission and the European Parliament.

    EU/Channel Islands
    Quote Message: It is critical that our European neighbours understand the value we place on the contribution their nationals make to our island. Up to 20% of our population is comprised of EU nationals who provide an invaluable contribution to our community and economy. I was able to reassure our interlocutors that we have developed the Jersey EU Settlement Scheme to ensure their nationals have continued ability to remain in Jersey after Brexit." from Ian Gorst
    Ian Gorst
    Quote Message: The visit to Brussels was very well-timed, given political developments in the UK this week. We discussed with representatives from the EU27 the value we place on the ongoing relationship between Europe and the Channel Islands. We were able to provide reassurance about the work that we are undertaking in Brexit planning, as well steps to meet the commitments made to the EU Code of Conduct Group on Business Taxation." from Gavin St Pier
