    Guernsey's Havelet Slipway bore the brunt of Friday's strong wind and waves, with the structure suffering "considerable" damage, Guernsey Harbours said.

    The slipway is now closed to the public, with States staff assessing the damage.

    Guernsey’s Harbourmaster Captain David Barker said: “This was a short sharp storm, with gusts up to Force Ten.

    "Even though our harbours provide excellent protection from the weather, it still managed to damage some of our mooring pontoons and the slipway at Havelet Bay."

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    Officials are baffled as they try to discover why a beach in Guernsey has poor water quality.

    Quality tests for Pembroke beach, in the north of the island, have been getting worse since 2003.

    The Department for Environmental Health in Guernsey say it is "unable to pinpoint" why the beach has poor water quality".

    Beaches in Guernsey are tested for water quality weekly during the summer period and every two weeks for the rest of the year.

    Of the 13 tested, three have had their water quality categorised as poor; Pembroke, Petit Bot and Cobo.

    Director of Environmental Health and Pollution Regulation, Tobin Cook, says they're continuing investigations.

    Jersey's environment minister says charging people to drive into St Helier at busy times could help clear traffic.

    Deputy John Young thinks a congestion charge could reduce gridlock and cut emissions.

    Any change would need approval from both islanders and the States.

    He says it's also helping to reduce plastic and paper waste in the island.
