  3. States 'wasted thousands' in legal battle

    BBC Radio Jersey

    It's claimed the States of Jersey has "wasted hundreds of thousands of pounds of tax payers' money" in a legal battle with an eye specialist who was sacked before he'd started work in the island.

    Consultant Amar Alwitry had resigned from his job in the UK and was a week away from starting in Jersey when he was dismissed.

    The Royal Court heard colleagues said "this chap looks like trouble" and "this appointment will be a disaster" before he was sacked.

    The sacking of Mr Alwitry was ruled unlawful and the court said he is entitled to seek damages of up to £8m.

    In a statement through his lawyers, Mr Alwitry said the States Employment Board had "wasted hundreds of thousands of pounds of taxpayers' money" in legal action against him.

    The board said it will be appealing the court's judgement.

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    The number of official complaints to the Medical Specialist Group (MSG) in Guernsey decreased last year, according to its newly published annual report.

    There were 59 in 2018 - compared to 94 in 2017.

    The number of complaints about clinical issues dropped, while those about staff attitude increased.

    The MSG's report outlines the challenges it faces delivering secondary health care in Guernsey - with delays in orthopaedic surgery exceeding the eight-week target for the bulk of the year.

    The patient satisfaction survey, which forms part of the annual report, shows that of the 610 patients who took part, 88% found the MSG's services "excellent" or "very good".

  8. Missing plane search: Coroner to examine recovered body

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    A coroner is set to examine a body that was recovered from the wreck of a light aircraft off Guernsey.

    The plane - carrying footballer, Emiliano Sala and pilot, David Ibbotson - disappeared from radar two weeks ago.

    The authorities haven't yet revealed the identity of the body.

    The Air Accidents Investigation Branch said specialist contractors joined the recovery operation in "challenging conditions".

    It was carried out in "as dignified a way as possible" and the men's families were kept updated throughout, it said.

    The Piper Malibu N264DB was en route from France to Cardiff, after the 28-year-old Argentine striker made a quick trip back to his former club Nantes two days after his £15m transfer to Cardiff was announced.
