Good evening. These are their news teams where you are.

:00:07.:00:10.

Good evening. These are their headlines. After 40 years, calling

:00:11.:00:21.

time on Jersey's licensing laws. It will be great if the law has a

:00:22.:00:26.

balanced on their health implications and how we can

:00:27.:00:30.

re-stimulate an economy and we stimulate tourism and hospitality.

:00:31.:00:32.

Flybe to concentrate on more profitable routes

:00:33.:00:34.

And there's still life in this old bike yet which is also

:00:35.:00:38.

And with some clout and showers this evening, tomorrow is not looking too

:00:39.:00:53.

bad. Pisi at times. Stay tuned for the forecast.

:00:54.:01:03.

There are plans to overhaul Jersey's 40-year-old licensing law.

:01:04.:01:08.

Proposed changes include politicians replacing the courts in granting

:01:09.:01:12.

licences to sell alcohol - and a new compulsory qualification

:01:13.:01:15.

Enjoying a pint may be an age-old tradition,

:01:16.:01:23.

but after a decade of consulting with pub landlords, bar-owners,

:01:24.:01:25.

and others in the industry, Jersey is calling time

:01:26.:01:30.

on its 40-year-old licensing law, to bring it into the 21st century.

:01:31.:01:35.

The main changes proposed are - a simpler licensing system

:01:36.:01:38.

holders prevent underage drinking and alcohol-related crime and health

:01:39.:01:43.

a group made up of politicians and the public would oversee

:01:44.:01:51.

The Constable involved says the process will become quicker,

:01:52.:01:57.

with less red tape - and safer, with the new

:01:58.:02:00.

that someone running it has the necessary experience

:02:01.:02:09.

We have a system at the moment but we want to make sure when people

:02:10.:02:15.

are deputising or on holiday people that are running pubs have got

:02:16.:02:18.

And this is welcomed by some of the business owners involved

:02:19.:02:22.

a car, or various other licences to do everything nowadays,

:02:23.:02:28.

how come you could just wander into the island,

:02:29.:02:31.

work in a bar and suddenly be a licence manager, which has a huge

:02:32.:02:34.

And he's pleased the granting of licences would move

:02:35.:02:38.

from the courts to a body that includes members of the public.

:02:39.:02:40.

Those are the people who are most affected by running

:02:41.:02:43.

a business and therefore those are the most critical

:02:44.:02:45.

I don't think we should be using jurats' and bailiffs' time

:02:46.:02:49.

to decide exactly what time you serve a pint until.

:02:50.:02:52.

There'll be more regulation of licensing to come

:02:53.:02:54.

in the next 18 months - including changes to fees paid

:02:55.:02:57.

But this particular legislation, aiming to modernise the system,

:02:58.:03:02.

will be debated in the States in just under six weeks.

:03:03.:03:08.

A 38-year-old labourer has been found not guilty

:03:09.:03:16.

by Jersey's Royal Court of raping a woman in St Helier last summer.

:03:17.:03:19.

Marcio Patricio Figueira Dias had been accused of raping a woman last

:03:20.:03:22.

August and has been in prison on remand since then.

:03:23.:03:24.

Today, after three hours of deliberation, a jury found him

:03:25.:03:27.

not guilty of rape and not guilty of sexual assault.

:03:28.:03:30.

He was found guilty of one count of attempting to pervert the course

:03:31.:03:33.

of justice by trying to influence a witness and will be

:03:34.:03:36.

Small businesses based on States-owned land

:03:37.:03:42.

at Guernsey's Fontaine Vinery have been given another year

:03:43.:03:44.

They were due to be kicked off the site in St Sampsons last year

:03:45.:03:49.

when it was announced it had been ear-marked instead for housing.

:03:50.:03:54.

But States members today agreed to extend their tenancy until next

:03:55.:03:59.

June, while a wider review of light industry is carried out by

:04:00.:04:01.

That's due to come back to the States for debate

:04:02.:04:06.

Jersey's Environment Department could end up spending ?30 million

:04:07.:04:11.

on a machine to remove nitrates from waste water

:04:12.:04:13.

Staff at the department are trying to reduce at source nitrates

:04:14.:04:26.

which cause sea lettuce to bloom in St Aubin's Bay.

:04:27.:04:28.

It's hoped with farmers using fewer nitrates, less will wash

:04:29.:04:31.

But a last ditch solution could be to install a multi-million pound

:04:32.:04:41.

de-nitrification plant at the island's new sewage works.

:04:42.:04:44.

It's money that we'd much rather not spend.

:04:45.:04:53.

The long term solution is to address nitrates at source,

:04:54.:04:55.

we're hoping that'll be successful to reduce it.

:04:56.:04:57.

We'll never get rid of green seaweed completely, but if our monitoring

:04:58.:05:00.

shows a real impact can be made by the extra financial investment

:05:01.:05:03.

in the sewage treatment works, then that's a debate to have.

:05:04.:05:05.

Some Flybe services could be cut over the next few years as one

:05:06.:05:08.

of the Channel Islands' most important airline struggles

:05:09.:05:10.

There's no telling where the axe could fall.

:05:11.:05:14.

The latest losses were unveiled today - although investors

:05:15.:05:16.

Our business correspondent Neil Gallacher reports.

:05:17.:05:21.

Flybe's losses were ?20 million for the full year, including

:05:22.:05:23.

the damage that was done to them by the weakening pound.

:05:24.:05:28.

So bad enough - although we've seen worse.

:05:29.:05:30.

Four years ago the losses were twice as bad.

:05:31.:05:39.

And today's news didn't rattle the investors,

:05:40.:05:40.

as they had already signalled that they were heading for a loss.

:05:41.:05:43.

Internal problem was that their website isn't good enough,

:05:44.:05:49.

and they're spending several million putting that right.

:05:50.:05:54.

The external problem was that they faced growth

:05:55.:05:56.

in competition at a time when consumer demand was falling.

:05:57.:06:00.

So they had too much capacity, too many planes.

:06:01.:06:03.

All we understand is that they will be sticking to the summer and winter

:06:04.:06:19.

schedules that are currently planned, in and out

:06:20.:06:21.

There'll be a lot of watching this space.

:06:22.:06:25.

An explosive shell from World War II was detonated by Guernsey Police

:06:26.:06:29.

after being discovered by children on the beach.

:06:30.:06:32.

It's believed to be a French shell used by the Germans.

:06:33.:06:35.

The recent stormy weather is thought to have shifted

:06:36.:06:37.

The device was exploded around lunchtime on Lihou Island.

:06:38.:06:50.

Bomb disposal experts say it's quite common for them

:06:51.:06:52.

I think we are up to 18 this year so far. The biggest find that we had

:06:53.:07:09.

this year was in February. That matched a similar find two years

:07:10.:07:13.

before that. Later in spotlight, Justin and

:07:14.:07:31.

Victoria are out and about at the Royal Cornwall show. Thousands of

:07:32.:07:34.

people have arrived despite the weather.

:07:35.:07:36.

They say one man's trash is another's treasure.

:07:37.:07:40.

Efforts are being made in Jersey to reduce the amount of waste

:07:41.:07:43.

the island creates by reusing or recycling items that

:07:44.:07:45.

Several bikes a day are left at the island's main recycling

:07:46.:07:51.

centre, and many of them are sent to a community group to refurbish.

:07:52.:07:54.

Volunteers at the Community Hub are busy with a steady stream

:07:55.:08:02.

of bikes that have been abandoned or donated by their owners.

:08:03.:08:05.

A bit of TLC and they're ready for the road again.

:08:06.:08:10.

These bikes have come from the new Acorn Reuse Centre

:08:11.:08:12.

at La Collette which has nowhere to store them.

:08:13.:08:15.

With around 25 bikes a week being dropped off,

:08:16.:08:19.

deciding what to do with them has been a challenge and now they're

:08:20.:08:22.

It's a good problem to have when you're receiving so many.

:08:23.:08:29.

What we're going to go down the line of doing now is selling the bikes

:08:30.:08:32.

as maybe parts up at Acorn, over the coming next few weeks,

:08:33.:08:38.

where people can purchase the bike as a part or spares and maybe

:08:39.:08:41.

But this is where they get a new lease of life.

:08:42.:08:45.

These dedicated volunteers based at St Saviour's Hospital,

:08:46.:08:49.

are fixing all kinds of adult and children's bikes.

:08:50.:08:53.

There are bikes and bike parts everywhere and they're making

:08:54.:08:55.

Oh, we've been inundated and like everything else,

:08:56.:08:59.

with the weather, everyone's getting out on their bikes and people

:09:00.:09:02.

want their bikes looked at and they want to change

:09:03.:09:04.

their bikes so, it's like everything else,

:09:05.:09:06.

we don't know what's going to be coming in, we just

:09:07.:09:08.

These upcycled bikes can be claimed with a donation to the scheme

:09:09.:09:13.

and give more people a chance to get in the saddle.

:09:14.:09:20.

A fairly dull day in the islands but we hear things could be getting

:09:21.:09:27.

That's right. In and drive foremost tomorrow. Sunshine hazy later on.

:09:28.:09:46.

The cloud through today bringing us showers through this evening. This

:09:47.:09:54.

cold front is leading a way to the East overnight to eight and into

:09:55.:09:58.

tomorrow. Into Saturday at this low-pressure system. Most of the

:09:59.:10:03.

cloud associated with that will go through the main centre of the UK.

:10:04.:10:13.

Tonight we have cloud and if you showers. Tending to clear away

:10:14.:10:16.

through the course of the night. Staying quite easy. Tomorrow starts

:10:17.:10:24.

off cloudy for many of us but we should see that reading away. Drier

:10:25.:10:32.

and brighter. Sunshine hazy at times. That wind easing a little.

:10:33.:11:03.

Here is the outlook. It is not looking too bad. Tomorrow is mainly

:11:04.:11:11.

fine and dry. Good sunny spells. Cloud in the second part of the day.

:11:12.:11:17.

It may be thick enough for light rain. It clears to Saturday, mainly

:11:18.:11:26.

a fine and bright day. The chance of one or two showers coming in. It

:11:27.:11:30.

stays similar into the beginning of next week.

:11:31.:11:45.

I'll be back at eight with a news update but there is no late news

:11:46.:11:49.

because of the coverage of the General Election

:11:50.:11:51.

Tomorrow there will be continued election coverage and how

:11:52.:11:54.

the results may affect us here in the islands on both

:11:55.:11:57.

BBC Radio Jersey and Guernsey's breakfast programmes from six

:11:58.:11:59.

And we'll have more on that and all your local news from the BBC

:12:00.:12:03.

in the sea. It is time to take you on a tour of

:12:04.:12:13.

this huge Royal Cornwall Show. One of the places I love to come to

:12:14.:12:18.

every year is the Cornwall food and farming tent. I have been coming

:12:19.:12:23.

here for more than 25 years but what strikes me coming here every year is

:12:24.:12:28.

how important local food and drink is to people now. The range of

:12:29.:12:33.

products in here is now huge. But the quality is also phenomenal. You

:12:34.:12:38.

can get everything from gorgeous Cornish bread to Cornish gin,

:12:39.:12:42.

Cornish ducks, cheese, the list of things you can buy is endless.

:12:43.:12:47.

Yes, you can naturally buy everything at this show. Welcome to

:12:48.:12:53.

my home, if only. This could be your holiday home, a honeymoon suite, it

:12:54.:12:58.

is a cabin made from locally sourced products. I think I may stay here a

:12:59.:13:03.

while longer and shelter from the showers. You can take a look around

:13:04.:13:05.

the rest of the show. Despite the weather,

:13:06.:13:12.

it's business as usual. The sheep judging and

:13:13.:13:15.

chasing starts early. Inside the sheep tent, they've spent

:13:16.:13:17.

hours preening their animals. We have a carding brush which brings

:13:18.:13:19.

the fleece together. And then I will go over with a pair

:13:20.:13:21.

of hand shears and trim them. These piglets are warm

:13:22.:13:25.

and dry and, according And these piglets are keeping warm

:13:26.:13:36.

on a rooting mission. The chicks can keep

:13:37.:13:42.

warm under a heat lamp. Well, they keep themselves

:13:43.:13:44.

dry by wrapping up. Waterproofs and wellies

:13:45.:13:48.

are the uniform of the day. And if you're really fed up

:13:49.:13:52.

with the wind and the rain, you can come to the flower tent

:13:53.:13:55.

and find your own jungle. This display of palms

:13:56.:13:58.

has won a gold medal. There's almost

:13:59.:14:01.

a tropical feel in here. But outside, most people

:14:02.:14:04.

are prepared to brave it out. Perfect weather

:14:05.:14:07.

for a bit of dancing. Although some of the younger members

:14:08.:14:09.

of the audience are finding It is a bit muddy and slippery

:14:10.:14:16.

underfoot but not enough to affect these athletes who have

:14:17.:14:29.

taken every with ease. As the day moves on,

:14:30.:14:36.

the rain dies out and the clouds can -- crowds can catch

:14:37.:14:43.

a glimpse of the sunshine. Some of the animals are used

:14:44.:14:45.

to the bad weather. She came off the moor in November

:14:46.:14:48.

to the lady I ride for, And yes she's come for a bit

:14:49.:14:52.

of handling and a bit of time out. She is really good despite

:14:53.:14:59.

the weather being really windy. We brought her last

:15:00.:15:01.

night, she loaded off in the rain and wind,

:15:02.:15:03.

she's been really good. The perfect way to dry off

:15:04.:15:06.

is to come to the Cornwall food and farming tent where you can enjoy

:15:07.:15:09.

a well-earned cup of Food is important at

:15:10.:15:12.

the Royal Cornwall Show There are 1000 horses, ponies

:15:13.:15:18.

and donkeys on the showground, record numbers of pigs and record

:15:19.:15:23.

numbers of sheep this year. I love the way the shoppers stop

:15:24.:15:27.

in their tracks as the showing and judging happens,

:15:28.:15:32.

it is exciting. Behind every flock, heard and gaggle

:15:33.:15:33.

there are the farmers. I bumped into a couple

:15:34.:15:36.

of old friends from last year. You were trying to

:15:37.:15:42.

photobomb the camera shot? I get the feeling coming

:15:43.:15:48.

to these shows it is all Coming and showing your

:15:49.:15:54.

livestock, and competing Some people like to

:15:55.:16:02.

win at all costs. Others just like to compete

:16:03.:16:14.

and basically show your animals off And then hope that some

:16:15.:16:16.

days you will win. What does winning

:16:17.:16:21.

mean for your herd? It is always good to bring

:16:22.:16:26.

home the red rosette. It's a good showcase if you can

:16:27.:16:31.

say your animals have won In fact in our first year

:16:32.:16:35.

of showing, at the end of the season we had a big win,

:16:36.:16:40.

didn't we, Jim? We only went to the show because our

:16:41.:16:44.

daughter-in-law was judging horses. We thought if she is going to judge

:16:45.:16:52.

horses we will take the cows We happened to win the interbreed

:16:53.:16:55.

championship which was And for us what made it so special,

:16:56.:16:59.

it was the only time of the year we covered our cost to enter

:17:00.:17:09.

the show and enough money to buy For us, we went home

:17:10.:17:12.

very happy that day. It's nice to go off as a family

:17:13.:17:16.

and compete, and it works very well. What can we look

:17:17.:17:23.

forward to this year? We are hoping to get to one-day

:17:24.:17:28.

shows even though we have been restricted and not able to come

:17:29.:17:31.

here this year. We hope to go to four of the one-day

:17:32.:17:33.

shows and hopefully bring I'm really pleased we managed

:17:34.:17:37.

to talk again this year, when everyone is at the beginning

:17:38.:17:42.

of the show, rather than at the end We will catch up with you later,

:17:43.:17:46.

when you can lead one It was so good to see Jim

:17:47.:17:51.

and Jean again, as Jim said, the way to spot an animal

:17:52.:18:12.

who is a potential show winner from an early age is if it has a bit

:18:13.:18:16.

of sparkle and a bit naughty. The stars of the show

:18:17.:18:20.

are the animals. This year in the main ring these

:18:21.:18:24.

wonderful vintage Ferguson tractors We will see them in action

:18:25.:18:27.

in a moment but the man behind this idea is David Taylor

:18:28.:18:33.

who is with us, hello. What is the idea, what do

:18:34.:18:35.

these tractors do? They'll do acrobatics,

:18:36.:18:46.

not jumping over each other, I don't know if that

:18:47.:18:49.

was a good idea. You asked people to come forward

:18:50.:18:57.

and they came in their droves. We already have a

:18:58.:19:04.

tractor display team. We wanted something else last

:19:05.:19:08.

year, something new. The Ferguson would be 70

:19:09.:19:16.

years old so I thought we would have a tractor display

:19:17.:19:19.

team but different. A few women said they would love

:19:20.:19:21.

to do it so I put an advert in the parish magazine

:19:22.:19:26.

and on Facebook, 27 came forward. Getting people to make

:19:27.:19:29.

a fool of themselves, How often do they get together

:19:30.:19:34.

to practise the display? Some of the girls when they started

:19:35.:19:39.

couldn't even drive, they'd never Most of them are horse

riders and got to grips. The second batch, it was white

:19:50.:19:58.

dresses, shoulder bags, flip-flops! Can't wait to see them in action,

:19:59.:20:03.

thank you for talking to us. John Henderson has been

:20:04.:20:06.

to see them in rehearsals. It is an agricultural

:20:07.:20:10.

marriage made in heaven. Or rather 16 women at the wheel

:20:11.:20:13.

of the TE20 Ferguson As displays go, it is

:20:14.:20:22.

hardly turbo-charged. The little grey Fergie has

:20:23.:20:36.

a top speed of 15mph. But

:20:37.:20:40.

the world's most famous mass-produced tractor has

:20:41.:20:42.

still got the wow factor. I like the bit where you were

:20:43.:20:49.

for, a bit of smoke! No prizes for guessing

We will get them back later on. David is here, I am glad you are in

:23:05.:23:08.

Good evening. We have had rain in the morning will stop and for a

:23:09.:23:12.

large part of the day we have also had some sunshine, not too bad apart

:23:13.:23:17.

from that wind. In the last few hours we have had big showers coming

along. Let us summarised tomorrow, we will

:23:21.:23:26.

see a largely dry day, some hazy sunshine, a risk of a few showers

:23:27.:23:30.

turning up during the morning but most will be gone by the afternoon.

:23:31.:23:33.

At the showground, the forecast isn't too bad for tomorrow. Saturday

:23:34.:23:38.

is different. We will have another weather front to give us a

:23:39.:23:43.

persistent rain. For clearer operations on Sunday, it is brighter

:23:44.:23:46.

with the risk of showers, still quite blustery.

:23:47.:23:50.

The satellite picture shows a lot of cloud cover over the UK, low

:23:51.:23:55.

pressure bringing rain this morning. That strike of cloud is moving

:23:56.:24:00.

eastwards. Behind it we have showers which will continue this evening and

:24:01.:24:03.

overnight. It has an area of low pressure and a

:24:04.:24:08.

weather front moving away from us. By the middle of tomorrow, we have a

:24:09.:24:14.

weak ridge of high pressure. That doesn't last. By Saturday,

:24:15.:24:19.

another front close by means a lot of cloud, windy, outbreaks of rain.

:24:20.:24:25.

Sunday, lots of isobars, quite blustery.

:24:26.:24:28.

We can pick up those showers in the last couple of hours on our radar

:24:29.:24:31.

picture. That shows you where the showers

:24:32.:24:36.

have been, more to come right now and other showers across the South

:24:37.:24:40.

West of England that could continue through the night.

:24:41.:24:44.

The forecast overnight is some clear skies but also some showers. Some

:24:45.:24:51.

showers in the small hours likely to be heavy with a minimum temperature

:24:52.:24:54.

of 12 degrees. Tomorrow morning, we should have

:24:55.:24:59.

some sunshine, some sunny spells, the chance of a few showers dotted

:25:00.:25:03.

around but those will disappear in the afternoon. We are left with

:25:04.:25:08.

medium and high level cloud. A reasonable day for most events

:25:09.:25:13.

taking place and the show continues here.

:25:14.:25:16.

Temperature is probably getting up to 18, a few places up to 19

:25:17.:25:21.

degrees. Not quite as windy as today.

:25:22.:25:26.

On to the times of high water, there they are for our ports and harbours.

:25:27.:25:38.

For the surfers, it is not very clean tomorrow, another large wave

:25:39.:25:49.

day tomorrow, choppy conditions, the breeze is unsure. Up to five feet

:25:50.:25:54.

but rather choppy. The sea temperature is up to 14 degrees.

:25:55.:25:59.

And here is the coastal waters forecast. A south-westerly, becoming

:26:00.:26:06.

more westerly tomorrow, forced six, showers, otherwise mainly fair with

:26:07.:26:10.

good visibility. The outlook for all of us at the

:26:11.:26:15.

weekend, Saturday doesn't look too clever, a breezy day with outbreaks

:26:16.:26:21.

of rain off and on. Not much respite from that as the weather front

:26:22.:26:23.

crosses as. By Sunday that will move to the

:26:24.:26:28.

east. We are left with blustery showers on Sunday, hopefully sunny

:26:29.:26:32.

spells in between, generally a lot of cloud, windy conditions.

:26:33.:26:37.

With a sigh of relief, it should improve for the early part of next

:26:38.:26:41.

week, high pressure coming back for the early part of next week.

:26:42.:26:48.

Certainly, things are settling down. Something to look forward to. Here

:26:49.:26:51.

at the showground tomorrow, the weather doesn't look too bad.

:26:52.:26:56.
