Eleven Alderney States workers have volunteered for severance as part of moves to improve the running of the island's government-run services.

Roy Burke, Alderney's chief executive, said the majority of the staff came from States Works, which provides contract and maintenance jobs.

He said all 11 were expected to have left by the end of September.

The voluntary severance scheme was launched after a report found a anumber of inefficiencies in the department.

Mr Burke said the structure had been similar to that used in Guernsey, which he suggested was "not appropriate" for an island the size of Alderney.

He said: "A lot of those issues have been addressed already. The management structures have changed to allow us to better manage those particular aspects."
