  2. Shaken, not stirred: Jersey car plate not the most expensive in the Channel Islands

    Rob Byrne

    BBC News Online

    A number plate sold at auction in Jersey this morning for £73,000 might be the island's most expensive ever, but it is way off the Channel Islands' record.

    A number plate bearing the number 007, sold at auction in Guernsey in 2015, is the most expensive.

    Then, an anonymous bidder paid £240,000 for the plate - presumably a James Bond fan.

    The sum falls short of the UK record, but exceeded the expectation of auctioneers, who estimated the value at £60,000.

    It must've have been an auction with a licence to thrill.

    Warning signs have been put up at La Vallette Bathing Pools by Guernsey's harbour authorities.

    They warn users to "be aware of the potential impacts of wave action from passing ships".

    A statement from Guernsey Harbours said a report from Condor about the incident on Saturday, which saw five teenages taken to hospital, "provided valuable information".

    It said the harbour master’s investigation and initial consideration of the report found "there may be a number of other lines of inquiry to pursue".

    The statement said no further comment would be made and it was not clear how long the investigation would take.

  5. Jersey captaincy 'a great honour' - Perchard

    James Law

    BBC Sport Online

    New Jersey cricket captain Charles Perchard says it is "a great honour" to have been given the role.

    The 24-year-old seam bowler, known as Chuggy, replaces Peter Gough as skipper and will lead the side in World Cricket League Division Five in South Africa later this year.

    Charles Perchard

    "I've been working very hard over the past seven or eight years of my career, and to receive this title is a great honour," Perchard told BBC Radio Jersey.

    "We've had a couple of informal discussions after a few beers, on various occasions, and I knew my name was in the hat. To have got the confirmation was great."

    Here's Caine Mundy in his birthday suit. No, not THAT birthday suit, but a suit for his birthday.

    The Jersey lad is down at Wimbledon for the first time today, and he's celebrating his 27th.

    Unsurprisingly, his beach-inspired threads are creating waves around the Wimbledon grounds.

    "I had about a dozen people asking for photos in about an hour," he laughed.

    His dad, Paul, who was dressed much more conservatively, didn't fancy it.

    "I haven't got the guts to wear that," he said.

  7. Speed limits under review, but major changes unlikely

    Guernsey Press

    A wide-ranging review of speed limits is being carried out in a bid to improve road safety.

  8. Ex-chief minister denies putting pressure on to suspend police chief

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Jersey's former chief minister has denied that he put pressure on a home affairs minister to suspend the island's police chief.

    Frank Walker was responding to comments in the Care Inquiry Report which questioned the suspension of Graham Power.

    Mr Power was suspended in 2008 over the way he handled an inquiry into former children's home Haut de la Garenne. He was suspended but never disciplined.

    He was suspended by the home affairs minister of the time, Deputy Andrew Lewis.

    Frank Walker said he agreed with the decision but didn't force it.

    Video caption: Guernsey bus turns into narrow road

    Guernsey bus operator CT Plus said a driver caught on video turning down a narrow road off an agreed route “failed to follow the correct procedure”.

    The footage, which appeared on a Facebook page called Guernsey's Shameful Driving, has been criticised by members of the group.

    After an investigation, a spokesman for CT Plus said it would now follow "internal procedures".

    The narrow one-way road the bus turned into has a width restriction of six feet.

    Local Traffic and Highway Services regulations state buses are permitted only to travel on roads with a width of 8ft 2in, and "on routes approved by the Transport Services".

    Guernsey Police said they had not received a complaint in relation to the incident.

  14. Jersey would grow with Uefa - Cassidy

    BBC Sport

    Martin Cassidy

    Jersey manager Martin Cassidy says his side's performances against "top opposition" show they would "become competitive" at international level.

    The Channel Islanders lost 2-1 on Tuesday to Leicester Under-23s, who they have played twice in three months.

    Jersey's bid to join Uefa was rejected last year, but their appeal against the decision was heard by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on 28 June.

    "We've got a really good foundation that we think we could grow," he said.

    Cassidy added to BBC Radio Jersey: "With the support that Uefa would give we can build and build and become - I don't know about a force - but certainly become competitive."

    A recycling company that called for a tax on plastic straws has welcomed the decision of a Channel Island pub chain to switch to paper straws.

    The Liberation Group, which has more than 100 establishments in the Channel Islands and the West County, said it made the decision on environmental grounds.

    A spokesman for BusinessWaste.co.uk said it was "great news".

  17. Children's commissioner 'could serve both islands'

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Jersey's new children's commissioner could be shared with Guernsey.

    Jersey Chief Minister Ian Gorst said he was pushing ahead with plans for the role, which has been recommended by the Jersey Care Inquiry.

    Representatives from the Jersey Appointments Commission are meeting other officials today to prepare the recruitment process.

    Senator Gorst said he wanted to get an advertisement into the media by the end of July and that "ultimately, this could be a Channel Island appointment".

  18. Vote ends to stop Bellozanne action

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Parishioners in St Helier have voted not to continue legal action over the Bellozanne Covenant.

    The agreement meant the parish didn't have to pay for its waste to be treated while the site was at Bellozanne.

    However, since the waste site has moved to the waterfront, the Infrastructure Department argued the covenant was no longer valid.

    Constable Simon Crowcroft had fought the decision in the courts, but lost.

    Last night, a parish assembly voted 29 to four to stop the legal action.
