Jersey's only cinema, Cineworld, is closed again this afternoon due to a technical fault with the lighting in some of their screens.

It closed for an hour on Friday due to a power cut then had to close on Sunday morning, with limited screenings in the afternoon due to a lighting issue.

A spokesman said they have an engineer on site to fix the problem and hope to open again as soon as possible.
