    A Jerseyman died in a skiing accident in The Alps, an inquest has heard.

    Zbigniew Jan Hermaszewski, 61, was skiing off-piste with a group of friends in the Bois Des Bergers region of The Alps in March.

    A small avalanche caused him to hit a series of trees on the way down the mountain.

    Deputy Viscount Mark Harris said he was "very sad to hear of his death" and passed his condolences to the Hermaszewski family.

  4. Jersey to make another bid to take on Guernsey waste

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Jersey will make another bid to take on the treatment of Guernsey's waste when the island's current waste contract with Sweden ends in 2021.

    Jersey lost out to the Scandinavian nation the last time the work was put out to tender.

    The States of Guernsey says sending the island's rubbish to Sweden is currently the cheapest and most environmentally friendly option available.

    Deputy Kevin Lewis, from the States of Jersey, said he wouldn't be dropping the bid "significantly" but has made a "very fair offer".

    "We're part of the Crown Dependencies and ever since I was elected in 2005 I always thought the islands should work closer together."

  5. Guernsey not benefiting from cruise visits says deputy

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    A Vale deputy wants to see stalls along the Albert Pier selling local produce, like gâche and cheese, when cruise liners are visiting the island.

    Neil Inder has already raised the issue in the States and now he's taken to Twitter to underline his point, saying the area's "devoid of opportunity".

    Last Friday saw two visiting cruise ships - the Sapphire Princess and the Britannia - with nearly 7,000 passengers on board between them.

    Deputy Inder says Guernsey is not making the most of the opportunity and action "needs to be taken".

    A spokesman for the States says it's something that's being looked at and points out that Guernsey wins cruise industry awards for its welcome.

  8. Government 'likely to authorise' new pay offer

    Teachers on strike

    The States Employment Board is to meet later and discuss progress made in resolving the ongoing pay dispute with Jersey teachers.

    Richard Buchanan, the Connétable of St. Ouen, said the meeting was "likely" to result in a fresh offer "along similar lines" to the offer made to civil servants on 24 May.

    This would entail a higher offer, in exchange for "sustainable savings and efficiencies" that Mr Buchanan claimed would "improve educational" outcomes in Jersey.

    Quote Message: We are inviting teachers and their unions to work with us to identify those efficiencies which, can then be shared with teachers from 1 January 2020. As well as resolving the pay dispute and ending disruption to education, we intend that this collaborative approach, involving teachers and unions at every step of the way, will help build trust and reinforce the value that we all place in our teachers. from Richard Buchanan Connétable, St. Ouen

  9. Disability and inclusion strategy falling behind

    Simon Fairclough

    Guernsey Political Reporter

    The latest report into Guernsey's disability and inclusion strategy shows that it is failing to meet targets in all but one area.

    The strategy is not enshrined in law, however the employment and social security committee says it is determined to get proposals to the States by June 2020.

    The only area deemed to be on course is 'information and awareness raising', whilst five other areas, including a framework for people with learning disabilities, are seen as having slight issues or risks.

    Two criteria, 'disability discrimination legislation' and 'equality and rights organisation', have been shown to have significant issues.

    A final area, work to get Guernsey signed up to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, has not even begun yet.

  10. 'Female runner assaulted by cyclist'

    BBC News Online

    Police are appealing for information after a female runner was assaulted by a cyclist in Jersey.

    It happened on Friday in the area of Rue de la Retraite at about 12:15.

    The woman was running along the road when she was assaulted by a man on a bicycle. He was described as being in his late teens or early 20s and was wearing a navy and mint green hoodie.

  11. Teachers at 'breaking point' over pay

    BBC Radio Jersey

    The leaders of a Jersey teachers union say their pay negotiations are now at 'breaking point'.

    The National Education Union has already carried out eight days of strikes, warning there could be more if the States fail to offer more money.

    The regional secretary of the organisation, Ian Stevenson, said they had given the States Employment Board until 31 May to accept a deal discussed on the 17 May, or face the possibility of more strikes.

    Mr Stevenson says the board has rejected any proposals from the union without offering any new suggestions, simply trying to dictate the terms of any settlement.

    Union members will meet Tuesday to discuss the way forward before leaders meet the board again on Wednesday.
