    BBC Radio Jersey

    Police in Jersey are asking for witnesses after they say a man was hit by a motorbike on the Esplanade.

    Officers said it happened just before 23:30 last Friday near the Grand Hotel when a group of motorbikes were driving east together, with one hitting the man near the pedestrian crossing while he was coming across the road from La Fregate.

    The 42-year-old victim was taken to hospital with serious injuries, although it is not thought they are life-changing or life-threatening.

    An 18-year-old who police said was riding a motorbike was also taken to hospital with minor injuries.

  3. Jersey senator opposing States members pay rise plans

    BBC Jersey political reporter

    A Jersey senator is opposing plans to give States members a pay rise.

    The board which sets States members' pay has recommended politicians' pay be increased from £46,600 to £48,000 by summer 2020, and then £50,000 in 2022.

    Senator Sarah Ferguson said it was not right to be discussing extra pay for politicians when there was a threat of strike action by civil servants over their own pay and conditions.

    The move can be stopped if a politician puts forward an annulment or an alternative plan.

  5. Jersey hospital plans scrapped after costing £30m

    BBC Radio Jersey

    A States plan to create a new hospital in Jersey has now been officially scrapped after costing £30m.

    The Future Hospital plans have officially been scrapped in favour of a new scheme called Our Hospital, which will be led by Deputy Hugh Raymond.

    Last month, the chief minister announced he hoped to find a site for the new hospital within 18 months after plans for a rebuild on the current site in Gloucester Street were abandoned.

    Now it's back to the drawing board as ministers look for a new team to lead the development of the hospital.

    Deputy Raymond insisted it was not a step in the wrong direction and "we're not going backwards".

    Quote Message: There was so much professional work done with regards to information about the hospital, surgeries, the number of times people went to hospital from all sorts of districts. That was all information which we needed." from Deputy Hugh Raymond States of Jersey

    He said he would like to see the majority of the new team formed from local expertise, adding that he was keen to listen to the needs of the public.

  6. Voted-out politicians could get compensation

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Sitting Jersey politicians could get paid compensation if they fail to get re-elected.

    It is one of a number of recommendations made by the board which sets States members' pay, and the amount they would get would depend on how long they had served.

    Currently, all States members receive the same remuneration "irrespective of the category of member or the position they hold".

    The board said all politicians should get a 7.5% pay rise by 2022, up from £46,500 to £50,000.

    It is also recommending those who had more responsibility should get extra, with a proposal of the chief minister getting a 40% increase of some £15,000.

    Chair of the pay board Gerald White said members should also get a pension.

  8. Call to improve Alderney's air links

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    An open letter is due be sent to the States of Guernsey this week calling on them to improve Alderney's airlinks.

    The letter has been written by Alderney resident and former States member Barbara Benfield, who has called on the States of Guernsey to intervene in what's described as a "shambolic service".

    Mrs Benfield questions the airline's management, and her letter has been signed by more than 600 people, with hundreds of personal accounts from people using Aurigny attached to it.

    The letter follows on from a number of cancellations and delays last weekend.

    Aurigny said it was refuting the claims, adding that it had invested in its Alderney services.

    The airline said that, for its size and population, Alderney was extremely well served in terms of flight frequency.

  10. Jersey States 'to save £100m by 2023'

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Jersey's government has set out plans to save £100m by 2023, while also increasing spending to almost £1bn a year over the same period.

    Ministers said the savings would come through efficiencies, placing a greater focus on the use of technology and moving many services online.

    However, the precise details of where the efficiencies and savings were to fall are not to be made public until October.

    Chief Minister John Le Fondre admitted he could not rule out job losses, but said the the aim was to provide government services in a more efficient manner.

    The savings are published as part of the Government Plan. The document, due to come into effect in January and reviewed annually, also includes plans for an emergency fund to tackle climate change.

    It will initially be filled with £5m from the States' rainy day fund and topped up by charging drivers an additional six pence per litre of fuel.
