A Guernsey shop owner has applied for permission to get a Carnaby Street-style arch for a shopping centre on the island.

Gallery owner Genevieve Langford said she had been inspired by the famous London landmark.

She said she hoped it would define the Old Quarter in St Peter Port by giving it a formal entrance.

Ms Langford said the aim was to have something made from wrought iron to be in keeping with the area.

She said the idea had the support of other shop owners in the area and the Town Centre Partnership.
