TV and radio law changes agreed by Guernsey States

A series of retrospective updates to Guernsey's broadcasting laws have been agreed by the States.

The Home Department said changes made in the UK between 2003 and 2010 had not been passed on to the island's authorities.

It meant the current laws left uncertainty over issues such as TV licensing and the power of the regulator Ofcom.

The changes have been approved as if brought in at the same time as the UK.

The update involved the approval of more than 20 different items of legislation.
