  3. Pot for pensioners 'could be empty by 2070'

    A pot of money set aside to care for Jersey pensioners could be empty by 2070 if strict population controls are introduced, an independent report has claimed.

    It suggests social security contributions might have to increase to make up the difference.

    Currently, if you work in Jersey, 6% of your salary goes towards social security and your employers pay an additional 6.5%.

    Most of the money goes into the social security fund - which is there to support pensioners and islanders unable to work due to illness or injury.

    Jersey has an ageing population, so it's expected this fund is going to be needed more and more.

    The UK government's auditors have looked at Jersey's social security fund, and how it might remain sustainable over the next 60 years. Their message is clear - either everyone in Jersey starts paying more in social security or the population is allowed to continue growing at a rate of at least 700 people a year.

    According to the report, if contributions remain at their current rate, by 2027 islanders will be taking more money out of the pot than putting in. The findings will be used to inform Jersey's government plan - due to be published this summer

    Guernsey Police is appealing for witnesses after a suspected arson attack at the Martello Tower.

  5. Aurigny 'disappointed and frustrated' over no subsidy

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    Guernsey's States-owned airline Aurigny said it was disappointed and frustrated not to have been awarded the subsidy to run the Alderney route.

    It was announced earlier none of the four bids to operate the route were deemed acceptable by Economic Development.

    Alderney's most senior politician, James Dent, says the situation is less than ideal.

  6. Twelve-hour parking limit introduced

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Controversial rules limiting the amount of time you can park at Le Port, in St Ouen's Bay, Jersey, have been introduced.

    The minister in charge has agreed to introduce a 12-hour limit, following complaints about noise, litter and inconsiderate behaviour from people camping overnight in the area.

    The move has been opposed by Senator Steve Pallett - who's described it as ill thought out and unnecessary.

    He'll ask the States to reverse the decision in a vote next month.

  7. 'No big events' for Fort Regent for 'at least a year'

    BBC Radio Jersey

    A Jersey deputy says Fort Regent won't be open to big events for at least a year.

    Deputy Hugh Raymond has been overseeing a review of the facilities at the fort, which has led to several large events being cancelled because of safety concerns.

    Many of the venue's emergency exits can't be used because they are in areas affected by asbestos.

    The deputy wants a review into the future of the fort.

  9. Crab fishing restrictions introduced

    BBC Radio Jersey

    There are new restrictions on fishing for chancre crabs in Jersey waters.

    The minimum size for crabs you can take is now 150mm, instead of 140mm.

    The number of crabs being landed in Jersey has halved from 500 tonnes in 2012, to almost 250 tonnes last year.

    It's thought the species is in decline. The restriction applies to both commercial and recreational boats.

  10. Work to improve safety at Fort Regent

    BBC Radio Jersey

    The States say work is already under way to improve safety at Fort Regent in Jersey, after large events were cancelled.

    There are concerns about the number of emergency exits, signs, marshalling and lighting.

    Deputy Hugh Raymond has been overseeing a review of the facilities at the fort, which has led to several large events there being cancelled over safety concerns. Its because many of the venue's emergency exits can't be used because they are in areas affected by asbestos.

    Following the review, no more than 1,170 people will be allowed to use the site at any one time.
