  3. Island sailor part of Greta's climate change sailing

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    A sailor originally from Guernsey will be part of the team that's taking climate change activist Greta Thunberg from the UK to America in August.

    Holly Cova now works in Germany with the operator who will make the two-week sailing to New York.

    Greta is attending two climate change conferences in America at the end of August and the Malizia II will be the vessel taking her there.

    She refuses to fly because of the environmental impact of air travel and will instead sail the high-tech vessel.

    Holly's dad Bruce still lives in Guernsey and is a keen sailor. He says he's "very proud" of his daughter ahead of the upcoming trip.

    The boat generates electricity through solar panels and underwater turbines.

  4. States hopes online incinerator video will 'dispel' myths

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Jersey ministers hope a new online video will dispel the myths surrounding the island's incinerator.

    About two thirds of the island's rubbish is processed at the energy from waste plant each year, which creates enough energy to power about 10,000 homes.

    But Deputy Kevin Lewis is concerned islanders aren't fully aware of what happens with the waste ash it produces.

    He wants to show islanders how its recycled and reused for building projects.

    Quote Message: The incinerator bottom ash is collected, bagged, taken to the UK and actually reprocessed as road aggregates and other things. At the front end we have the fly ash which is from the top and is also reprocessed in the UK. It's a very efficient unit. from Deputy Kevin Lewis States of Jersey

  5. Guernsey woman calls for more reliable travel links

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    Condor Ferries

    A woman travelling on Condor Ferries says it's a "shame" Guernsey doesn't have more reliable travel links after her sailing was cancelled.

    Since the weekend, a number of Condor sailings have been affected by the poor weather and technical issues.

    Margaret Scarlett was due to arrive in Guernsey at about lunch time on Monday but didn't get home until about 19:20 after a series of delays.

    She says the lack of communication made her travel experience "very unpleasant".

    A spokesperson for Condor said it has drafted in as many staff as possible and handled more than 10,000 calls from affected passengers over the past few days.

    They added some may therefore experience delays in reaching the operator's contact centre for which it apologises.

    BBC Radio Jersey

    An online newspaper in Jersey has been fined £4,000 for breaking local court laws governing reporting restrictions.

    BBC News Online

    Guernsey's Education Committee has refuted accusations that its President Matt Falliaze overruled an interview panel on the appointment of the new head of curriculum and standards.

    In a statement released on Monday evening the committee said it "does not have the authority to overrule interview panels or senior officers in appointments to civil service posts."

    It also described claims that it put pressure on the initially successful candidate to withdraw from the process after accepting the job as "false".

    Deputy Falliaze said the current appointee for the role, Clare Sealy, was only chosen after the previous candidate withdrew from the process.

    BBC Weather
