    A new world record for sailing round Britain and Ireland has been set by a team including a man from Jersey.

    Phil Sharp was part of the Imerys Clean Energy team that won their class and set a new record in the Sevenstar Round Britain and Ireland race.

  3. Resident blasts 'horrendous' planning guidelines for site

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    Planning guidelines for the area known as the Briarwood in St Martin have been described as "horrendous" by a local resident.


    The States drew up the guidelines for future developers as a "framework" for any planning applications which might be made for the area.

    Members of the island's Development and Planning Authority said it would be suitable to build up to 22 homes on the site, but a local resident - who asked to remain anonymous - said it would be "horrendous for generations to come".

    The resident said more houses could put pressure on the local school, which was already "massively overpopulated", and warned future development could make traffic issues worse for the area as the roads were already "bottlenecks".

    No planning applications have been made for the site by developers since the guidelines were released.

  5. Sport stars asked to show colours for Pride

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Sports men and women are being asked to back this year's Channel Island Pride by wearing rainbow-coloured laces and sweatbands.

    The Pride in Sport initiative encourages local sports stars to show their support for the LGBT community.

    Organisers say it aims to encourage everyone to feel confident and safe whilst playing sport.

    Ellie Jones, the head of the charity Liberate in Guernsey, says there is still prejudice and discrimination in sport that needs to be challenged.

    Quote Message: The biggest problem is probably homophobic language I guess. Even people who aren't LGBT will say they hear it in the stands or have been subjected to homophobic slurs. It does need to be stamped out. It is a bit similar to racism in the '80s and '90s, I guess; and that has been stamped out a lot." from Ellie Jones Liberate Guernsey

  6. Call to rescind decision to reject Tamba expansion

    Ryan Morrison

    BBC News Online

    The decision to reject a development at Tamba Park in St Mary could be overturned if the States agrees.

    An independent planning inspector recommended the development should go ahead in a process that cost taxpayers £25,000.

    Planning Minister John Young went against the inspector, saying approving the development in the green zone would set a precedent for future applications.

    Tamba park

    Deputy Scott Wickenden, who has called for the decision to be overturned, said the decision should be made by the Planning Committee, not by the minister on his own.

    He argued that the minister should not have claimed approving the park expansion would set a precedent.

    Deputy Wickenden said: "It would make it very hard to review and consider any planning application on its own merits, and the application process would end up being something similar to a court case."

    Kris Heron, senior lifeguard on duty, said by the time the surfer got back to shore he was cold and exhausted but didn't need an ambulance.

  11. 'Watch what you flush' warning after 'fatberg' blockage

    Edward Rowe

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    Water engineers in Guernsey are warning people to "watch what they flush" after more than a tonne of waste flushed down the toilet caused serious blockages on 15 August.

    The "fatberg" was made predominately of wet wipes and caused problems for the island's water system.

    The blockage was at a pumping station on the South Side of St Sampsons Harbour and a crane was needed to pull it out.

    Operations manager Jon Holt said only the three Ps - "poo pee and paper" - should get flushed down the toilet.
