    Lifeboats and a French helicopter were involved in searching for a missing diver just after 10:00 this morning.

    The diver was 20 minutes late returning to their vessel from a drift dive, 12 nautical miles south east of St Helier harbour.

    The Jersey Coastguard launched the rescue and a mayday relay informed a number of other nearby boats who responded.

    The diver was found by the RNLI inshore lifeboat and then taken back to the vessel after a welfare check.

    This is the second diving incident coordinated by the Jersey Coastguard in the past 24 hours.

    They wish to highlight the importance of divers having a recognised diver’s surface marker buoy to help people find them.

  5. Jersey Post adds 20 bikes to electric vehicle fleet

    A further 20 electric bicycles have been added to Jersey Post's fleet of environmentally-friendly vehicles.

    The bikes were first trialled earlier this year and the service now has 35 on Jersey's roads, complementing its electric vans, meaning half of the vehicle fleet is now electric.

    The traditional three geared postal bikes used on Jersey Post's 37 cycle-based delivery rounds will now be phased out.

    Niall McClure, managing director of postal operations, said: "With the increase of parcel volumes and lead up to Christmas, these eBikes will be able to support our postal workers and provide more timely deliveries by allowing them to take more volume and weight, especially on days with full, heavy postal rounds to deliver to."

  6. Tamba Park: Islanders' views wanted on how to improve park

    BBC Radio Jersey

    The owner of Tamba Park says he would consider letting it to someone else.

    The attraction closed for renovations a few months ago and since it shut, there has been uncertainty over the future of the site.

    Jonathan Ruff says the inside play area, including the cafe and kiosk, will stay closed when it does reopen - but he wants to revamp the outside area.

    He's asking for ideas from islanders on how the park could be improved and says people have already suggested opening a petting zoo featuring pigs, sheep and rabbits.
