Guernsey's former telephone museum is being put up for sale for £550,000.

The States-owned site in the Castel was built as a telephone switch-room and manager's residence in June 1906 and became a communications museum in 1976.

In 2011 the States closed the loss-making museum with the exhibits removed and put into storage.

The site is being sold as part of a wider move to reduce the island government's property portfolio in a bid to save money.

Planning permission to convert the building into a pair of two-bedroom homes has already been granted.
