    BBC Radio Jersey

    A Condor ferry was damaged when it "came into light contact" in a Jersey harbour berth after sailing from St Malo on Sunday night, the ferry firm says.

    The Rapide ferry was backing into the berth at the end of its voyage, but hit its starboard rear corner. The vessel was damaged but able to return to St Malo on three engines.

    The operator said: "The vessel docked at 16:15 at all passengers disembarked on time.

    "An initial inspection of the hull confirmed only superficial damage and Rapide was able to continue her journey, departing for St Malo early at 18:09.

    "The Jersey harbour master was notified of the incident."

  4. 'Limited work' on Guernsey infrastructure plan

    Limited work has been done by the Committee for Environment and Infrastructure on a new Island Infrastructure Plan.

    The information has come to light following questions from Deputy Carl Meerveld looking at progress with the scheme.

    The plan effectively is a look at co-ordinating the approach to the delivery of the infrastructure vital to the States of Guernsey's priorities.

    So far, despite a request from the Environment Department for £200,000 across the next two years to support the development of the plan, no dedicated money has been put towards its development.

    Following questions from Islanders' Association founding member Deputy Meerveld, the committee admitted that, until dedicated resources were allocated, progress in producing a detailed project plan would be limited.

    In an update to States members earlier this month, Deputy Barry Brehaut, said he had written to the Policy and Resources Committee asking for assistance in this regard.

  5. All mail in Jersey 'will be delivered'

    BBC Radio Jersey

    All mail that has been received by Jersey Post and currently on the island will be delivered, the utility says.

    On Twitter earlier on Monday, managers said the mail plane due to arrive early on Monday morning was cancelled because of bad weather.

    That post is now due to arrive instead on Thursday 27 December.

    However, all mail already in the island would be delivered before Christmas Day, bosses said.

  6. Condor Rapide damaged in berth crash

    BBC Radio Jersey

    The Condor Rapide was damaged after it crashed into its berth on returning from St Malo on Sunday night.

    The ferry was backing into a Jersey harbour at the end of its voyage, but hit its starboard rear corner.

    Passengers said there was a loud crunching noise and the vessel shook.

    It's understood the boat was damaged but was able to return to St Malo on three engines.

    The west berth is out of action while specialist echo sounding equipment is used to see if it's damaged below the waterline.

    Harbour master Bill Saddler says he'll be speaking to Condor to find out what happened.

    Alan Donald from the Ports of Jersey says it shouldn't cause any disruption because only a limited number of ferries are sailing over the Christmas period.

    BBC Jersey has approached Condor for comment.

  9. Guernsey deputy 'sick of excuses' over flight bids

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    Deputy for St Peter Port North, John Gollop said he's "sick of commercial confidentiality being given as a stock excuse".

    He said it will be hard for States members to come to a rational decision when questions still remain about whether or not the island will be served by a viable operator...

  10. Petition to ban glyphosate in Jersey gets 1,000 signatures

    Freddie Miller

    BBC Jersey political reporter

    A Jersey minister will consider the latest UK and EU research before responding to a petition calling for a weedkiller chemical to be banned in the island.

    More than 1,000 people have signed online in an attempt to outlaw glyphosate use in Jersey.

    Glyphosate was introduced by US agrochemical giant Monsanto in 1974, but its patent expired in 2000, and now the chemical is sold by various manufacturers.


    The Monsanto weedkiller is called Roundup and it is the world's biggest-selling weedkiller.

    The petition in the island was launched months after a Californian court ordered Monsanto to pay $289m in damages to a man who claimed herbicides containing the product had caused his cancer.

    The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) says glyphosate is unlikely to cause cancer in humans.

    Deputy John Young says he will seek advice from scientists before deciding what to do next.
