The gift of life. - so it's goodbye from me -

:00:00.:00:00.

Compared to the UK, Jersey is described as an embarrassment

:00:07.:00:08.

I think, as an island, we should be very embarrassed about that. 36% of

:00:09.:00:23.

the UK think they have a law sign up late and we are less than half of

:00:24.:00:25.

that. Gas prices are expensive in Jersey

:00:26.:00:26.

but there's no need for regulation, Plus storms, sharks,

:00:27.:00:29.

flying sea snakes and 3,600 miles. The challenge of a lifetime

:00:30.:00:32.

for one Guernsey man. It's a gift that could make

:00:33.:00:48.

the difference between life or death, but in Jersey only 12%

:00:49.:00:51.

of the population have registered It's been described

:00:52.:00:53.

as an embarrassment, compared to the UK's

:00:54.:00:59.

sign-up rate of 36%. The Health Minister is now

:01:00.:01:04.

considering following Wales and France and adopting

:01:05.:01:06.

an opt-out system. There's me and my mum

:01:07.:01:07.

on my 18th birthday, That was probably one of the last

:01:08.:01:12.

times we were altogether. But her death enabled others to live

:01:13.:01:19.

as she was an organ donor. I take great pride in what we did

:01:20.:01:32.

and what my mum did. We still receive cards

:01:33.:01:35.

and letters from the people who received my mum's organs,

:01:36.:01:37.

saying, "Thank you for another wonderful year," you know,

:01:38.:01:43.

"I've been able to grow up, I've just had another

:01:44.:01:44.

grandchild just been born," and how amazing is that to have made

:01:45.:01:50.

a difference to make difference in their lives

:01:51.:01:56.

at such a sad time for us? But organ donors are

:01:57.:01:58.

a minority in Jersey. As only 12% of the islands

:01:59.:02:00.

population have registered, -- Jersey's sign-up rate

:02:01.:02:02.

is embarrassingly low and I think as an island we should be very

:02:03.:02:18.

embarrassed Neil's daughter had a heart

:02:19.:02:20.

transplant ten years ago. He now campaigns for organ donation

:02:21.:02:23.

and thinks the low sign-up rate People aren't aware that there

:02:24.:02:26.

is only one register which is based in the UK and that Jersey people

:02:27.:02:31.

who live here have access to that register and its to the UK we look

:02:32.:02:34.

for organs when we need them. But with eight people in Jersey

:02:35.:02:38.

and over 6,500 people in the UK currently waiting for a transplant,

:02:39.:02:41.

there is a shortage. Jersey's Health Minister is now

:02:42.:02:44.

considering adopting an opt-out system like Wales and France,

:02:45.:02:47.

but want the public's view before Scotland are doing a consultation,

:02:48.:02:51.

Wales have done it, England are following suit,

:02:52.:02:58.

I think, with a consultation soon, So, we're on the English register,

:02:59.:03:00.

we should be in line with England as well,

:03:01.:03:06.

so I think it's a possibility, With changes being considered

:03:07.:03:08.

to try to grow the number of organ donors in Jersey,

:03:09.:03:12.

more lives could be saved in future There are plans to look

:03:13.:03:15.

into whether people with high energy bills in Jersey should

:03:16.:03:28.

get help to pay them. It's after an independent report

:03:29.:03:30.

concluded Jersey gas prices don't But the minister responsible says

switched fully to electricity Beforehand, we had gas,

:03:41.:03:45.

oil and electric. It was expensive to run on gas,

:03:46.:03:52.

so when we did the refurbishment we decided to look at the providers,

:03:53.:03:57.

the costs and everything else, Most people here told me

:03:58.:03:59.

they don't use gas at home. But those who rely

:04:00.:04:08.

on it said it's pricey. Of course, I am a pensioner

competition believes Jersey Gas is a very expensive

energy source for consumers, and over the next few weeks I need

:05:02.:05:08.

to take this report to work out whether there are any options

:05:09.:05:12.

for govt for reducing those consumers who are facing

:05:13.:05:14.

high energy costs. Senator Ozouf plans

to talk to Jersey Gas and the Consumer Council

fuel prices in Guernsey At some garages, it's now more

:05:28.:05:31.

than ?1.20 for a litre of unleaded, higher than it would be

:05:32.:05:36.

at many UK garages. It's because the cost

:05:37.:05:39.

of oil has risen. The oil producing companies of the

:05:40.:05:51.

world met and decided that he wanted to increase prices and the only way

:05:52.:05:57.

that they can do that is by dropping consumption and, production, rather.

:05:58.:06:01.

Which they burned by 1.2 million barrels a day, which took effect by

:06:02.:06:06.

the 1st of January. When production is lower, prices rise and over the

:06:07.:06:09.

next few months, we'll see price rises.

:06:10.:06:10.

Outline plans have been submitted to turn a former brewery

:06:11.:06:13.

Channel Island developers Com prop want to build a 605-space

:06:14.:06:17.

multi-storey and 15 new homes on the site of the disused

:06:18.:06:19.

The ?19 million project includes keeping the listed brewery facade

:06:20.:06:25.

and creating a walkway linking St Saviour's Road to the Town Park

:06:26.:06:30.

and replaces previous plans for a supermarket there.

:06:31.:06:35.

There are currently no plans to reconsider the decision to send

:06:36.:06:37.

Guernsey's waste to Sweden for recycling from next year,

:06:38.:06:41.

The Island's landfill site is almost full and there's been calls

:06:42.:06:47.

for Guernsey to look at options closer to home, such

:06:48.:06:50.

The authorities say despite falling exchange rates,

:06:51.:06:55.

they are still confident that the agreement to send

:06:56.:06:57.

it to Sweden provides the best value for money.

:06:58.:07:08.

Currently, Jersey an unsuccessful bidder Philip tendering process. We

:07:09.:07:14.

will be looking at a contract for three years, with the option of

:07:15.:07:18.

extending for two at the end of the three years, it is entirely likely

:07:19.:07:22.

that we will be re-tendering and jersey can put in another bed.

:07:23.:07:30.

University students from Jersey and those who can't afford to go

:07:31.:07:33.

away to study are sharing their experiences as part

:07:34.:07:36.

A States panel is looking at the financial challenges faced

:07:37.:07:39.

by young people and their families to access higher education,

:07:40.:07:42.

A Guernsey man will take on a challenge this year that has

:07:43.:07:46.

Along with three crew members, 27-year-old James Plumley will row

:07:47.:07:50.

across the Indian Ocean, a journey that has been successfully

:07:51.:07:52.

completed by fewer people than have been into space.

:07:53.:07:54.

Lucy Bickerton caught up with him to find out why he's doing it.

:07:55.:08:12.

For now, though, it's full steam ahead in a greenhouse.

:08:13.:08:16.

But what will James fear the most, when him and his team leave the safe

:08:17.:08:20.

I've heard there's flying sea snakes, which I'm

:08:21.:08:23.

Apparently there could be big storms, sharks and other

:08:24.:08:26.

We're going into the unknown and will find out when there

:08:27.:08:29.

No stranger to the seas, in 2013, James broke the world record

:08:30.:08:39.

They'll row two hours on, two hours off continually for 3,600 miles.

:08:40.:08:51.

His friend and coach is helping him prepare for the set off in June.

:08:52.:08:56.

You need someone to keep you in check and motivated and chat

:08:57.:08:58.

I think it's probably where my use comes in as he doesn't know

:08:59.:09:03.

the other guys well, so you need someone to ask

:09:04.:09:13.

The team will raise money for Young Onset Parkinson's Disease.

:09:14.:09:16.

And scientists will monitor the rowers progress,

:09:17.:09:18.

-- as one crew member has Parkinson's.

:09:19.:09:27.

But will James be looking to break any more world records?

:09:28.:09:29.

There's a record of 57 days which I think half way through we'll

:09:30.:09:32.

decided if we want to go for it, but the main challenge

:09:33.:09:35.

41 crews have tried, 20 have succeeded.

:09:36.:09:52.

Good luck to James and we'll keep you up to date with his progress.

:09:53.:09:56.

The weather will be throwing everything it has at him.

:09:57.:09:58.

Slightly cold air as we head into the weekend. The great day and it

:09:59.:10:12.

will feel cold, there may even be summarily frost. Also sunshine to

:10:13.:10:20.

enjoy as well. The cloud is just a bit thick enough for a few spots of

:10:21.:10:26.

light rain and drizzle. That sort of fizzles out later on tonight and

:10:27.:10:28.

moves to the Westerners by the middle the data model. We have high

:10:29.:10:34.

pressure coming back which is also a source of quite cold here.

:10:35.:10:36.

Temperatures will struggle again tomorrow morning. The high pressure

:10:37.:10:52.

is finally on the move. Some patchy Chuzzlewit on this evening. Probably

:10:53.:10:57.

around midnight, one or two EEM, that will disappear. The have a

:10:58.:11:06.

frost tomorrow. -- we will have a frost tomorrow. You will need to

:11:07.:11:14.

wrap up warm, as it is not overly warm tomorrow. The wind is light and

:11:15.:11:19.

mainly for the East and south-east. There are times of high water. For

:11:20.:11:27.

our surfers, there's not much for to enjoy. The coastal waters forecast

weekend, generally fear with good visibility. Freddy as a different

:11:43.:11:46.

day, there is a lot more cloud and rain. Freddy, with more cloud

:11:47.:11:51.

around, you will struggle with the temperatures. Seven, perhaps eight

:11:52.:11:56.

Celsius. Saturday will see a few white spots of rain. That's all from

injured military men. And, coming up, I'm at Sandy Park

:13:59.:14:06.

as the team get ready for what could be their toughest

:14:07.:14:09.

test of the season. If you'd been seriously injured

:14:30.:14:34.

border for the first time since that attack as part of a convoy taking

:14:35.:14:42.

out vital medical equipment. The trip was organised by Devon

:14:43.:14:45.

doctor Mark Hannaford. They're now back home and they've

:14:46.:14:48.

been describing their journey. One of the big parts of the convoy

:14:49.:15:04.

was to make a statement to the Syrian people that they are not

:15:05.:15:06.

forgotten about and that people do care. The journey itself, we set off

:15:07.:15:13.

from London 2600 miles, ten different countries, a few

:15:14.:15:16.

interesting border crossings, a major blizzard. I think the evening

:15:17.:15:21.

we were trapped in the snow when we got to the untapped and had handed

:15:22.:15:33.

over this... Was it six babies? They were frozen to death in TQ to get

:15:34.:15:42.

into Turkey that night. We had been into an area that was surrounded by

:15:43.:15:46.

a ring of steel, artillery. As the days went on it became insanity. The

:15:47.:15:55.

buildings around us were falling. Most of the people we had gone in

:15:56.:16:04.

with were dead so we said... We woke in the morning about 7am and within

:16:05.:16:13.

minutes a rocket hit about 100 metres one side and 100 metres the

:16:14.:16:18.

other side. 30 seconds later two more rockets hit maybe 50 metres

:16:19.:16:22.

away and by now the building was starting to rumble. I wanted my

:16:23.:16:28.

camera so I ran through looking in the rubble and found my bag and got

:16:29.:16:33.

my camera, run back in. The corridor behind me exploded. That was taken

:16:34.:16:42.

out. Then a shell hit a direct hit about four metres or five metres

:16:43.:16:46.

from where I was standing. But about two metres away. It was an almighty,

:16:47.:16:55.

I can't really describe the intensity of the explosion. But I

:16:56.:17:03.

was still standing there. When it comes down. This thought something

:17:04.:17:15.

was a bit in my leg like a stone, my hand came out to the other side of

:17:16.:17:21.

my leg. I went to look for Marie and I fell and landed on top of her.

:17:22.:17:29.

Since I have been out I have been a complete thorn in the side of

:17:30.:17:32.

everyone trying to get them to act on Syria. So when the opportunity

:17:33.:17:37.

came with the convoy I have no hesitation. They said yes before I

:17:38.:17:41.

knew why we were going to Syria. Yes, I will go back. Because they

:17:42.:17:49.

gave everything to get me out. The chance to go back and actually do

:17:50.:17:55.

something, physically help, yet, it was all I needed. Mark here had it

:17:56.:18:04.

all sorted. I'm just glad they got him in because it was a tough thing

:18:05.:18:10.

to do in that time scale. Yeah, the fundraising initially was ?91,000

:18:11.:18:16.

the target. No time we did final tally, what came in will be closer

:18:17.:18:23.

to a quarter of a million. The public response was amazing. We have

:18:24.:18:28.

certainly been looking at what we can do next to provide further

:18:29.:18:34.

support. A cunning plan! A stunning plan!

:18:35.:18:44.

While Plymouth Argyle's trip to Liverpool may be dominating

:18:45.:18:47.

the sporting headlines in the south-west this week,

:18:48.:18:52.

there's also a huge rugby match coming up for the Exeter Chiefs.

:18:53.:18:54.

They take on Premiership champions Saracens off the back of two great

:18:55.:18:57.

Andy Birkett has been along to Sandy Park.

:18:58.:19:05.

The Chiefs crashed into the festive season full of cheer,

:19:06.:19:09.

thrashing Leicester on Christmas Eve.

:19:10.:19:11.

New Year's Eve and there was more of the same.

:19:12.:19:13.

This time it was a dramatic last-gasp win

:19:14.:19:16.

Each win saw them leapfrog their opponents in the table.

:19:17.:19:21.

Now, with a trip to the European and Premiership champions next,

:19:22.:19:23.

We didn't always have the best of starts to the season,

:19:24.:19:30.

and I think it seems we have pulled it together.

:19:31.:19:33.

A lot of people say we were quite lucky on the weekend,

:19:34.:19:35.

but we stayed in it for 80 minutes and I think that's

:19:36.:19:38.

It doesn't matter when you score your points, as long as by the end

:19:39.:19:43.

I think the team is in a good space at the moment to really get

:19:44.:19:48.

a bit of confidence, go up there looking forward

:19:49.:19:50.

When the two teams met here at Sandy Park at the start

:19:51.:19:54.

of the season, Sarries ran out convincing winners.

:19:55.:19:56.

But the Chiefs' form has really picked up in the last few weeks,

:19:57.:20:00.

and now is as good a time as any to take them on again.

:20:01.:20:03.

Often at this time of year it is about turning up

:20:04.:20:06.

with the right attitude, the right energy, in

:20:07.:20:07.

the right frame of mind and you genuinely give it a real go.

:20:08.:20:11.

And that gives us a foothold, and once you have got a foothold

:20:12.:20:14.

you can start to make your decisions during the game.

:20:15.:20:16.

We have focused far more on that than trying to devise some

:20:17.:20:19.

clever plan, because, you know, most of what Saracens can

:20:20.:20:21.

Not only are these games exciting for the players,

:20:22.:20:25.

When two Premiership heavyweights go head-to-head.

:20:26.:20:29.

Two former Royal Marines from Devon, who had to retire on medical

:20:30.:20:33.

grounds, are setting off tomorrow as part of a five-man military team

:20:34.:20:36.

to climb the highest mountain in Antarctica.

:20:37.:20:39.

Danny Claricoates and James Nightingale both fought in two

:20:40.:20:42.

James was shot in the jaw, while Danny had post-traumatic

:20:43.:20:46.

stress after witnessing two friends killed by a roadside bomb.

:20:47.:20:51.

Johnny Rutherford has been to see how Danny is preparing

:20:52.:20:54.

This was a spot training for the five-man team

:20:55.:21:00.

last year in Chamonix, France.

:21:01.:21:10.

Their mission to raise money for the Royal Marines charity

:21:11.:21:12.

by climbing the highest peak in Antarctica, Mount Vincent,

:21:13.:21:14.

which is no mean feat at more than half the height of Mount

:21:15.:21:18.

But for ex-Royal Marine Danny Claricoates it's much more

:21:19.:21:21.

In 2007 he fought in Afghanistan and was awarded the Military Cross.

:21:22.:21:25.

I've come home, 18 months later went back out to Afghanistan

:21:26.:21:27.

And during that tour two lads, two friends of mine in my team

:21:28.:21:31.

So, yeah, that was the turning point for me.

:21:32.:21:39.

That's where it all sort of finished for me.

:21:40.:21:42.

Post-traumatic stress disorder brought a premature end

:21:43.:21:45.

There are days sometimes where I just don't want to get out of bed.

:21:46.:21:51.

You just sort of pull the duvet over your head and just, you know,

:21:52.:21:54.

you just want to give up on life, but by doing something

:21:55.:21:57.

like this it gives me something to work towards,

:21:58.:21:59.

Danny wants to use the expedition to make more people aware

:22:00.:22:05.

It's about addressing the stigma, it's about educating that actually

:22:06.:22:11.

We are able to own our own businesses and work for a living

:22:12.:22:18.

The extreme challenge to get to the top of the bottom

:22:19.:22:24.

There is a part of me that is a bit jealous,

:22:25.:22:29.

I think the Antarctic would be a bit harsh for me.

:22:30.:22:34.

Although Sarah herself is no stranger to physical challenges,

:22:35.:22:38.

as she won a bronze medal at the Invictus Games last year.

:22:39.:22:41.

I know for Danny with his PTSD, I have seen for myself

:22:42.:22:44.

how much he benefits from being in the outdoors.

:22:45.:22:46.

We've both been to Everest base camp together.

:22:47.:22:50.

And personally for his rehabilitation, and just

:22:51.:22:53.

for his self-confidence, his self-esteem, the benefits

:22:54.:22:55.

Walking axe, sleeping bag, couple of water bottles...

:22:56.:23:04.

The team hope to reach the summit by next Friday.

:23:05.:23:08.

Cos once a Royal Marine, always a Royal Marine.

:23:09.:23:15.

That report from Johnny Rutherford, and all being well we're hoping

:23:16.:23:18.

to talk to Danny from the Antarctic sometime next week.

:23:19.:23:25.

We wish them well. Let's find out what the weather is doing closer to

:23:26.:23:33.

home. Nowhere near as cold. But it will get a little bit chillier?

:23:34.:23:37.

Probably not as cold as it was earlier in the week but another fast

:23:38.:23:42.

as possible. At the moment a good cover of cloud helping keep

:23:43.:23:46.

temperatures up but it is clearing. These were pictures from earlier in

:23:47.:23:55.

the week. We had some sunshine. I think the cloud has made a bit of a

:23:56.:24:00.

different sort of a day to day and I think tomorrow we may return to the

:24:01.:24:04.

sort of pictures with more sunshine. We could well start with Prost. Not

:24:05.:24:10.

everywhere. Dry and find for most of us and we will see some sunshine.

:24:11.:24:15.

The boundary between where the riverfront clears and where we get

:24:16.:24:19.

the clear skies and the low temperatures could give us a risk of

:24:20.:24:24.

ice bowl tonight and at first tomorrow. Watch out for that

:24:25.:24:27.

particularly on the minor roads which may not have had treatment. A

:24:28.:24:32.

lot happening at the moment. Weather front drifting in from the North

:24:33.:24:35.

already producing some light rain and drizzle but it does clear from

:24:36.:24:40.

all but parts of Cornwall during the course of the night and at first

:24:41.:24:43.

tomorrow morning but it is still there around the middle of the day.

:24:44.:24:48.

Further east the best of the sunshine will be Dorset and

:24:49.:24:52.

Somerset. Closer to this area of high pressure which is on the move.

:24:53.:24:57.

It will probably clear quite simply by the end of Friday allowing mild

:24:58.:25:02.

air to arrive and also a lot of cloud and outbreaks of rain. We do

:25:03.:25:07.

get westerly winds which gives us a lot of cloud. That is the cover of

:25:08.:25:11.

cloud we have got in the last few hours. Some holes in the cloud

:25:12.:25:15.

through Wales and parts of Somerset and Dorset, already breaking up. It

:25:16.:25:20.

will gradually move westwards but not really clear from Cornwall

:25:21.:25:24.

particularly the west by the end of the night. Where we do see the clear

:25:25.:25:28.

skies we will see quite a sharp frost and we're looking at pretty

:25:29.:25:31.

low temperatures. Crossing were eastern of Devon and parts of

:25:32.:25:37.

Somerset and the north of Dorset we could see temperatures as low as

:25:38.:25:41.

minus five or minus six. Further west with all the cloud cover of

:25:42.:25:46.

cloud will be just about free. It is the boundary line through parts of

:25:47.:25:49.

east Cornwall and the West of Devon where we will see some clearance but

:25:50.:25:55.

also enough moisture for a few icy stretches on roads and pavements.

:25:56.:25:58.

Tomorrow the best of the sunshine is underused. A lot of cloud affecting

:25:59.:26:02.

Cornwall particularly in the West and Isles of Scilly. The band of

:26:03.:26:06.

cloud will slowly go back towards London during the course of the day

:26:07.:26:11.

and eventually cloud the skies across West Devon. The best of the

:26:12.:26:15.

sunshine in East Devon and Somerset and Dorset. Temperature is where it

:26:16.:26:19.

starts really cold struggling. Light winds. Four or five across parts of

:26:20.:26:25.

Somerset. Up to double figures in the far West of Cornwall. But the

:26:26.:26:30.

Isles of Scilly it is rather cloudy and we continue to see a risk of a

:26:31.:26:42.

few showers here and there. Surfing conditions aren't brilliant

:26:43.:26:47.

tomorrow. Up to about two feet on the north coast. A bit choppy along

:26:48.:26:51.

the south coast. A southerly breeze which will gradually pick up along

:26:52.:26:55.

the course of the day. South or south-easterly for most of us. 3-4

:26:56.:26:59.

and generally fair with good visibility. Let's look at the

:27:00.:27:04.

forecast a little bit further ahead. Freddie looks like it will be much

:27:05.:27:08.

milder but rather cloudy and outbreaks of rain, some of that

:27:09.:27:13.

being quite widespread through the afternoon. Saturday is a bit

:27:14.:27:18.

brighter and still a lot of cloud. I think the weekend ahead it is mild,

:27:19.:27:24.

quiet but at times rather cloudy. Make the most of the sunshine

:27:25.:27:29.

tomorrow. Have a good evening. We will have news from Northam and the

:27:30.:27:35.

public meeting concerning possible help cuts in the late news at

:27:36.:27:37.

10:30pm. Good night.

:27:38.:27:41.
