Opinion was divided equally after a debate on "architectural eyesores" and "incongruous buildings" in Guernsey.

About 200 islanders went to Beau Sejour on Thursday, to discuss whether or not these buildings ruined the island.

During the debate Robin Penna, one of the organisers of the eyesore petition, said more guidance was needed on the suitability of developments locally.

In response architect Jamie Falla said today's "incongruous buildings" could be tomorrow's heritage.
