  1. Armed police at events 'to help public feel safe'

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Armed police officers were at the Jersey Battle of Flowers and Moonlight Parade in response to terrorism incidents in the UK and Europe, senior officers say.

    A number of people commented online that the presence of police was overkill and they were sad that young children had to see it; while others supported it.

    Acting Chief Inspector Mark Hafey said there was no intelligence to say there was going to be an attack and it was just a precaution.

We want the public to be able to attend thee events and know there is there is a policing response there that is appropriate should we need it." from Acting Chief Inspector Mark Hafey State of Jersey Police

    BBC Jersey

    Jersey's States is planning to pilot a "listening lounge" for people experiencing psychological distress as an alternative to them calling emergency services.

    Health bosses said they wanted to put in place new mental health crisis support teams to help people who were either experiencing a first episode, or a relapse of mental illness, by the end of next year.

    There will be greater support for people with more complex needs, such as post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of physical and sexual abuse.

    The are also been plans to invest in the buildings where these services are based.

    Orchard House will undergo major renovations so patients can still be treated there.

  12. Swimmers urged to avoid Havre des Pas due to sewage spill

    BBC Radio Jersey

    The States is warning swimmers not to go in Jersey's Havre des Pas beach area until 17:30 because of a sewage spill.

    Authorities have said heavy rain during Sunday night’s storm led to the spill from the Dicq pumping station at about 02:30 on Monday.

    Teams from Growth, Housing and Environment have cleaned the spilled waste from the beach, and samples of the water have revealed high levels of E.coli and other bacteria.

    The Dicq pumping station contains both foul sewage and surface water and is connected to St Helier’s combined sewer system.

    When it rains heavily the surface water can overload the network.

    Lifeguards closed the bathing pool on Monday evening for 24 hour hours to allow for two tidal changes.
