  3. Liberty Bus apologises over card website hack

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Jersey's bus company says its Avanchi card website should now be secure again, after it was attacked by cyber hackers.

    More than 360 people's details were stolen in the attack - one of them was the Liberty Bus director Kevin Hart.

    The company said the leak could have happened at any time over the last two weeks.

    It apologised to anyone who was affected, and has written to them with advice on how to reset their passwords.

    Mr Hart says they will run checks over the site over the next few weeks.

    The Avanchi smart card allows passengers to add pay as you go credit when travelling in the island.

    More than four out of five nurses and midwives are unhappy with their pay, according to a report.

    The work completed by The Inspiring Leaders Network on behalf of the States found that the strategic approach to pay and reward is not working in the way intended.

    The report states that the the current system is no longer fit for purpose and doesn't have the confidence of employees.
