A 19th century Jersey church is being restored after the States of Jersey agreed to pay for repairs.

St James Church in St Helier has been covered in scaffolding for the past decade over fears of falling masonry.

It is used by the Jersey Arts Centre as a venue for concerts and plays and will still be able to be used while the work is carried out.

Jersey Property Holdings will make the spire safe again and work is due to start in September.
