    Hundreds of people have attended a service of remembrance at the St Helier Cenotaph to mark the 75th anniversary of the D Day landings.

    Jersey's Bailiff, Sir William Bailhache, and the Constable of St Helier, Simon Crowcroft were among those to lay a wreath in memory of the thousands of soldiers who fought in June 1944.

    The Dean of Jersey, the Very Reverend Mike Keirle, gave a final blessing expressing gratitude to veterans who had "lived and died on the beaches of Normandy in the pursuit of peace and the defence of freedom".

    Veterans and their families have been honoured at a special event called a vin d'honneur, held at the Town Hall.

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Jersey hospital authorities have apologised to the family of a woman who died after staff injected drugs into the wrong blood vessel during an operation.

    Patricia Elsie Renouf, 77, was admitted after suffering severe stomach pain which required an operation.

    The injection was meant to go into her jugular vein, but instead entered her carotid artery, causing her to have a stroke and die.

    The hospital has launched a serious case review and a number of changes have been made to prevent any similar deaths.

    An official delegation from Guernsey has travelled to Normandy to join the D-Day 75th anniversary commemorations.

    Deputy Gavin St Pier, Deputy Jonathan Le Tocq and Sir Richard Collas, bailiff of Guernsey, will attend remembrance services hosted by the Royal British Legion, as well as an international cemetery at Juno Beach hosted by the French prime minister.

    Deputy St Pier described the opportunity to represent the island at the ceremonies as an "honour", citing the importance of the event in the subsequent liberation of Guernsey in 1945.

    Quote Message: We have close cultural and historical ties with Normandy, now underpinned by our political cooperation agreement. These commemorations are primarily an opportunity to remember the sacrifices of an earlier generation to secure our freedom but they also provide a valuable opportunity to demonstrate our ongoing work to maintain and strengthen important relationships. from Gavin St Pier Chief Minister of Guernsey

    Having already represented Guernsey in basketball and football, Rochelle Vaudin has been crowned Women's Golf Champion.

    Rochelle only started playing golf three years ago and quickly fell in love with the game.

    She also wanted to encourage everyone to give new sports a go, no matter how old they might be.

    "If 10 years ago someone had said to me 'you'll be the island golf champion', I'd have laughed."

  9. Teachers union temporarily calls off further strike action

    BBC Radio Jersey


    Members of a teachers union say there has been "quite rapid progress" in its pay negotiations with the States and it has temporarily put off calling further strikes.

    The National Education Union met on Tuesday and dismissed the latest offer from the States as "insulting".

    The plan was for teachers to share the benefits of any savings that could be made in the education system.

    But union leader, Ian Stevenson says there has been a productive meeting with the States Employment Board which could lead to an agreement on Friday.

    He had intended to give notice of further strikes later, but will now wait and see if that agreement is made.

    If it isn't, then he will give notification of further strikes.

  11. Number of incidents using force double at Guernsey prison

    Edward Rowe

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    The number of incidents in which force was used at Guernsey's prison doubled last year - compared to 2017.

    There were 61 incidents at Les Nicolles which required staff to use force on the prisoners in 2018, with the most common reason being non-compliance with the rules.

    Other notable categories include verbal arguments, intervening to prevent self harm and fights with another prisoner.

    The figures have been released in the prison's latest annual report which also noted some positive developments within the prison including the beginning of the new community workshop and installing computer terminals in all cells to be used under supervision.

    The prison also had a slightly higher population in 2018 with an average of 100 prisoners.
