    Litter in Jersey

    The National Trust for Jersey is asking people to stop dropping litter at two island beauty spots.

    In a post on social media, the organisation said it had found litter on land at Le Hocq and behind the pier at St Brelade nearly every Monday morning.

    Fences had been found broken, "pulled part and either burnt or thrown in the sea".

    Rubbish discovered included plastic bags, drinks bottles, smashed glass and other items, staff said.

    The trust said it could not patrol all of its sites and needed people's help to catch whoever's doing it.

    Trust Lands Manager Jon Parkes told the BBC: "It's taking up so much of our time it's quite an issue".

  3. Help offered to those affected by Le Marais estate move

    BBC Radio Jersey

    People who have to move out of Le Marais estate in Jersey will get plenty of help to find somewhere else to live, according to the housing minister

    About 500 people will need to move out of 224 properties on the estate owned by Andium Homes over a period of four years.

    It's being refurbished with new kitchens, bathrooms and heating.

    Andium said residents would be accommodated nearby or in the refurbished blocks.

    Senator Sam Mezec said there would be "face-to-face meetings" with every individual household.

    He said: "Everyone can get a personalised solution, rather than a simple 'you go off and do this with yourself', which would have been completely inappropriate."

  6. Scrutiny boss seeks legal advice over education head row

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    The head of Guernsey's main scrutiny body says the committee will be taking legal advice before looking into the appointment process of the new head of curriculum and standards in Guernsey.

    It comes after Head of Education Matt Fallaize (pictured) said he would not be resigning after being accused of overruling an employment panel.

    The Guernsey Press reported that Deputy Fallaize overruled an independent interview panel's choice of a local candidate in April.

    Deputy Fallaize said he had "acted honourably throughout" the appointment.

    The identity of the initially successful candidate is unknown, but the role was eventually offered to prominent head teacher and education blogger Clare Sealy.

    Scrutiny Management Committee President Chris Green said it was an issue complicated by the ongoing legal proceedings and they didn't want to "blunder in".

    Quote Message: By its very nature, the recruitment process involves a particular individual, particular legal, confidentiality, data protection and other issues. What we want to do is, rather than blundering into a situation where we end up compromising people's legal rights, we want to take advice from appropriate lawyers, then meet as a committee, have a discussion about this and decide the way forward." from President, Scrutiny Management Committee Deputy Chris Green
