Guernsey Border Agency staff are carrying out "heightened checks" of incoming passengers following the attacks in Paris.

A spokesman said it would mean some delays in getting through arrival points and the measures were likely to be in place until early next week.

The French flag at Victor Hugo's House and the French Consulate at Hauteville House is flying at half mast.

Nearly 130 people died in gun and bomb attacks in Paris on Friday night.

Guernsey's Chief Minister Jonathan Le Tocq tweeted: "Our thoughts are heading to the bereaved families & all our French friends."
