Guernsey's Education Committee has survived a vote of no confidence.

:00:08.:00:11.

Good evening and welcome to the late news from BBC Channel Islands,

:00:12.:00:14.

Also tonight: Two islands and one big row - calls

:00:15.:00:19.

Guernsey's Education Committee has survived a vote of no confidence.

:00:20.:00:32.

It follows concerns that members don't support the move away

:00:33.:00:35.

States members voted 22-13 against the motion placed

:00:36.:00:41.

by Deputy Emilie Yerby and signed by six other members.

:00:42.:00:44.

She's one of the new faces in the government.

:00:45.:00:53.

And Deputy Emilie Yerby has been leading an attempt to take down

:00:54.:00:56.

the Committee for Education, Sport and Culture.

:00:57.:01:00.

One of its members, Deputy Mark Leadbeater,

:01:01.:01:05.

And Deputy Yerby says she can't understand how

:01:06.:01:09.

I have said that this particular committee,

:01:10.:01:13.

who have not just said that selection is the right way forward,

:01:14.:01:22.

but has said in so many words that non-selection is unworkable

:01:23.:01:25.

I don't understand how they feel they can do it.

:01:26.:01:27.

But, in the States today, the remaining members

:01:28.:01:29.

Its Vice President says, despite all the pressure,

:01:30.:01:33.

We had difference of opinion in the selection debate,

:01:34.:01:40.

but in most things we have been unanimous in our decisions

:01:41.:01:43.

and we work well together, we have a balance.

:01:44.:01:45.

We can come back with a proposal that appeals to both

:01:46.:01:48.

You don't want to have five non-selectionists pioneering

:01:49.:01:54.

a cause that half the house will not support when it comes

:01:55.:01:57.

After a day's debate in the States' Chamber,

:01:58.:02:00.

So the Committee for Education, Sport and Culture survives

:02:01.:02:05.

But it's been a politically bruising start to the new year.

:02:06.:02:14.

Tomorrow on BBC Radio Guernsey's breakfast programme

:02:15.:02:16.

with Jim Cathcart, there will be reaction from the education

:02:17.:02:19.

Fishermen in Jersey claim they're being persecuted and effectively

:02:20.:02:27.

prevented from fishing in Guernsey waters.

:02:28.:02:29.

They say a fee of ?500 to renew current licences is unfair and can't

:02:30.:02:32.

be justified whereas Guernsey fishermen don't have to pay

:02:33.:02:35.

Alison Moss has been following the story.

:02:36.:02:50.

It all centres on the Guernsey waters which are between three

:02:51.:02:53.

It would be to renew a licence which allows fishing boats to work in

:02:54.:03:06.

water off Guernsey's post. The fishing industry here in Guernsey

:03:07.:03:11.

say it is unfair and they want politicians to step in. If we can

:03:12.:03:16.

believe the rhetoric that the islands are trying to work together,

:03:17.:03:21.

and I hope that is the case, then it should be a political matter to

:03:22.:03:27.

simply resolve this and have that ?500 fee removed. I think that is

:03:28.:03:30.

the way to go. When Jersey fishermen have asked for an explanation of

:03:31.:03:37.

what the ?500 actually represent, they are told that it is a political

:03:38.:03:42.

decision to charge Jersey fishermen. The main issue here is that Jersey

:03:43.:03:46.

fishermen feel it is unfair that they are expected to pay a ?500

:03:47.:03:52.

administrative charge but Guernsey fishermen don't. States of Guernsey

:03:53.:03:56.

have decided to subsidise their fishermen so they don't have to pay.

:03:57.:04:00.

The Department responsible here in Jersey say they aware of the issue

:04:01.:04:04.

and they are currently discussing it. But be fishermen Association

:04:05.:04:10.

want them to step in and talk to the authorities in Guernsey.

:04:11.:04:13.

A hearing has been told midwives in Guernsey were providing "unsafe

:04:14.:04:16.

and inadequate standards of care" when a newborn baby died in 2014.

:04:17.:04:19.

Three staff on the Loveridge Ward at Princess Elizabeth Hospital

:04:20.:04:21.

are facing misconduct charges at a Nursing and Midwifery Council

:04:22.:04:24.

Today, the hearing was told senior nurse Lisa Granville investigated

:04:25.:04:31.

the baby's death and found no issues with its treatment.

:04:32.:04:34.

But later reviews revealed "inadequate" care and concerns that

:04:35.:04:37.

midwives were acting outside the scope of their practice.

:04:38.:04:40.

The three women accept some charges and deny others.

:04:41.:04:44.

The hearing is expected to last four weeks.

:04:45.:04:53.

A 31-year-old man has appeared in court in Jersey to face

:04:54.:04:56.

Appearing in the Magistrate's Court, Pawel Dzielak, who was born

:04:57.:05:00.

in Poland, is accused of robbing Temple Stores in Stopford Road last

:05:01.:05:04.

He was remanded in custody until his next court

:05:05.:05:08.

The Jersey Reds chairman is confident the rugby club will be

:05:09.:05:18.

able to buy back their St Peter ground within three years.

:05:19.:05:20.

Jersey recently sold their assets after running

:05:21.:05:24.

But now fundraising plans are underway, and last night more

:05:25.:05:28.

than 100 club members met to find out about them.

:05:29.:05:32.

After successive years of financial losses,

:05:33.:05:39.

the Reds took the bold step of selling the clubhouse

:05:40.:05:41.

A short-term help - for the time being

:05:42.:05:45.

they're renting them, but now begins the work

:05:46.:05:47.

While the club hopes to bring in half of the money needed

:05:48.:05:53.

by selling a plot of land, the rest will need to be raised

:05:54.:05:56.

by supporters or sponsorship, including a big fundraising ball.

:05:57.:05:58.

We went through some dark days at the latter end of last year,

:05:59.:06:01.

but two really good things have come out of that, one is the fact

:06:02.:06:04.

we are back in control of our own destiny, and secondly

:06:05.:06:07.

the number of tremendously qualified individuals that have stepped

:06:08.:06:10.

forward and offered their help, both in financial terms,

:06:11.:06:13.

but more importantly, giving their time to drive efforts

:06:14.:06:16.

The club has also been considering its structure.

:06:17.:06:24.

They want to stay fully professional and continue playing

:06:25.:06:26.

To do that in a less risky way could mean more loan

:06:27.:06:31.

We have got to do it in a way that we can afford.

:06:32.:06:36.

We will be working with some premiership clubs to see how we can

:06:37.:06:39.

develop relationships with them to take loan players from them

:06:40.:06:42.

for an extended period of time, to supplement a core

:06:43.:06:44.

of professionals that we would put directly onto our books.

:06:45.:06:48.

A new stand at St Peter could also be on the cards -

:06:49.:06:51.

better facilities should attract bigger crowds, and therefore

:06:52.:06:54.

more cash to help get the Reds their home back.

:06:55.:07:06.

From plans to abolish public executions, to a man

:07:07.:07:08.

found guilty of bigamy - more than 150 records have been made

:07:09.:07:11.

available for the first time by Jersey Heritage.

:07:12.:07:14.

They've been closed to public access for up to 100 years but they're now

:07:15.:07:17.

able to shed light on some of the island's darkest periods of

:07:18.:07:20.

June 1940, German planes moving to bomb St Peter Port

:07:21.:07:35.

Nine people died that day in Jersey, but now,

:07:36.:07:39.

thanks to the island's archivists, their stories live on.

:07:40.:07:43.

Here we have a list of the people who died in the air raids that took

:07:44.:07:46.

place just prior to occupation, and then the inquest that

:07:47.:07:49.

More than 150 records have been opened to the public

:07:50.:07:53.

They include notes from those inquests.

:07:54.:07:58.

These give the details of the planes coming over.

:07:59.:08:01.

We can see members of the family having to go

:08:02.:08:03.

We know those who died at the scene and those

:08:04.:08:09.

It just adds a bit more information to what we already know.

:08:10.:08:16.

Some of the records have not been seen for over 100 years.

:08:17.:08:19.

This is a petition by Frederick John Smith.

:08:20.:08:21.

He was sentenced to a year in prison for bigamy,

:08:22.:08:26.

but here he asked if he can join the Army instead.

:08:27.:08:29.

The request was granted and he was sent to the front.

:08:30.:08:32.

They are just a fascinating history of Jersey socially, politically,

:08:33.:08:39.

but also they tell the stories of the people who lived here,

:08:40.:08:42.

and I think that is what we like to try and do at the archive.

:08:43.:08:45.

We want to bring history to life for people.

:08:46.:08:47.

The records are now open for the public to view,

:08:48.:08:50.

ensuring that Jersey's history is preserved for all

:08:51.:08:52.

Hello, good evening. We have got a change in our weather over the

:08:53.:09:09.

coming days, but today has been a decent day across the islands with

:09:10.:09:13.

some sunshine and it has been a dry day. Tomorrow is a very different

:09:14.:09:19.

story. Wet and windy, very gusty up to 50 mph for some of us and it will

:09:20.:09:23.

feel bitterly cold. Quiet at the moment with a north-westerly

:09:24.:09:26.

airflow, a few showers lingering. Some respite for we see the rain

:09:27.:09:31.

pushing in. The bulk of the rain comes through tomorrow afternoon,

:09:32.:09:35.

most will be rain, but once it clear that it will be colder air so we

:09:36.:09:38.

could see some wintry showers following behind. The wind will be

:09:39.:09:46.

strong, perhaps even 60 mph. By Friday a northerly airflow, so much

:09:47.:09:49.

colder air and anything that falls out of the sky on Friday is likely

:09:50.:09:55.

to be wintry. Most of the showers dying away, but we will see is a

:09:56.:09:58.

more persistent rain pushing in towards dawn. The wins will ease,

:09:59.:10:04.

with Tebbit is down to 4 degrees. The rain on and off through the

:10:05.:10:08.

morning, by lunchtime the bulk of the rainbow push in and the wind

:10:09.:10:12.

will pick up giving us a wet end to the day. Torrential downpours,

:10:13.:10:17.

strong, gusty winds, so it is going to feel cold tomorrow. Much colder

:10:18.:10:24.

than both haemorrhages suggest. Dash-macro those temperatures.

:10:25.:10:30.

Tomorrow will be mostly rain. Once that weather system plays through

:10:31.:10:34.

the afternoon, that colder air digs in. Through Thursday night and into

:10:35.:10:40.

Friday, we have the risk of ice and wintry showers, there could be hail

:10:41.:10:44.

and sleet. Strong and gusty winds on Friday. It turns milder as we head

:10:45.:10:48.

That's your news this Wednesday evening.

:10:49.:10:52.

On Good Morning Jersey tomorrow, following recent revelations,

:10:53.:10:54.

reaction to a new report into Jersey's controversial

:10:55.:10:56.

start to the weekend. Time for the national weather prospects if you

:10:57.:11:01.

are on the move. Good evening, a lot going on with

:11:02.:11:10.

the weather in the next few days, numerous weather warnings in for so

:11:11.:11:13.

buried in mind if you have travel plans. Lots of isobars on the chart

:11:14.:11:17.

overnight which means it will be windy for all. The strongest winds

:11:18.:11:19.

in Scotland, lots of wintry showers with snow getting down to

:11:20.:11:23.

increasingly low levels and some wintry showers in Northern Ireland

:11:24.:11:27.

and northern England. A cold night for Northern England, particularly

:11:28.:11:30.

in more rural spots, frosty and I see for some and some of the snow

:11:31.:11:35.

really blowing around over higher ground in Scotland. Strong wind and

:11:36.:11:38.

further snow to take us into tomorrow. It may well make for some

:11:39.:11:41.

tricky travelling conditions. The forecast for tomorrow in the

:11:42.:11:44.

southern half of the UK's quite tricky. We have got mild air bumping

:11:45.:11:47.

into colder

:11:48.:11:48.
