More details on hands for Jdrsey's new hospital. We have to allow for a

:00:00.:00:19.

flexible solution that can deal with whatever health developments take

:00:20.:00:20.

place in the future. A childhood obesity crisis ? a third

:00:21.:00:26.

of youngsters are overweight. Plus, remembering the war ddad

:00:27.:00:28.

islanders pay their respects And I'll have the latest

:00:29.:00:31.

weather forecast. Restaurants and hotels

:00:32.:00:49.

will have to go to Ministers have officially lodged

:00:50.:00:51.

proposals for a brand new ptrpose built hospital to be built behind

:00:52.:00:56.

the current one to make it cheaper, quicker and less

:00:57.:00:59.

disruptive to patients. Now the Health Minister has to get

:01:00.:01:02.

the States to agree to it. Jersey's General Hospital

:01:03.:01:05.

is here to stay, despite it being the chosen location

:01:06.:01:10.

for the island's future one. That's because the new hosphtal

:01:11.:01:14.

will be a separate building built around the back along

:01:15.:01:17.

Newgate Street. It's significantly more

:01:18.:01:23.

efficient and more affordable to build in a single phase,

:01:24.:01:25.

shorter programme with a single interface to the existing hospital

:01:26.:01:32.

that's very different There will therefore be less

:01:33.:01:34.

disruption to patients They've managed to go ahead

:01:35.:01:39.

with plans for this smaller, We were looking for 20,000 square

:01:40.:01:43.

metres on the ground floor, that enabled us to have Outpatients,

:01:44.:01:53.

Emergency and Imaging services all on the ground floor,

:01:54.:01:55.

making it more accessible to people. With this new scheme we are looking

:01:56.:01:58.

at a 10,000 square metre footprint and what the Patriotic Stredt car

:01:59.:02:01.

park allows us to do is to come in at a number of different levels,

:02:02.:02:05.

into Outpatients on those ldvels, which gets us over that problem

:02:06.:02:08.

of having everything The plans also mean all

:02:09.:02:10.

of this will have to go. I come here every afternoon to have

:02:11.:02:23.

coffee with my family and friends. At the end of the day, we'll be

:02:24.:02:27.

losing out on something that is good, but also we would be gaining a

:02:28.:02:33.

lot more, a new hospital. Other changes include moving the

:02:34.:02:37.

outpatients department to cross the Park, where hospital staff

:02:38.:02:42.

accommodation is. And using the old hospital as an education centre for

:02:43.:02:46.

future health workers. As only if this new 466 Medea pounds hospital

:02:47.:02:50.

idea gets the go-ahead from the States at the end of next month

:02:51.:02:54.

Earlier, I spoke to Jersey's Health Minister,

:02:55.:02:56.

Senator Andrew Green, and asked him what he's going to do

:02:57.:02:58.

about all those businesses that will now need to move.

:02:59.:03:06.

That is probably the downside of this scheme. We know that two of the

:03:07.:03:12.

biggest businesses are willhng sellers, and of course one or two

:03:13.:03:19.

others, perhaps a little bit of a surprise for them. This will be a

:03:20.:03:23.

matter of negotiation with them How can you ensure that people

:03:24.:03:28.

continue to get good health care while the hospital is being built?

:03:29.:03:32.

That is a good question, an important one. You will havd noted

:03:33.:03:38.

that we won't have moved in patient services at all, and that's why it

:03:39.:03:41.

is essential to get those fdw buildings on the side of patriotic

:03:42.:03:44.

street, the businesses we t`lked about at the beginning, and that

:03:45.:03:48.

allows us to build a new endrgy Centre while the old energy centre

:03:49.:03:54.

runs current inpatient servhces The only services moving our

:03:55.:03:57.

Administration and outpatients. I can safely say that we will be able

:03:58.:04:01.

to maintain a safe, efficient and good service during the changeover.

:04:02.:04:05.

Nearly a third of nine and ten-year-olds in Guernsdy

:04:06.:04:07.

That's one of the key findings after the height and weight

:04:08.:04:13.

of primary school pupils were measured to give a picture

:04:14.:04:15.

If this is making you hungrx, new statistics may curb

:04:16.:04:22.

Because figures out today for childhood obesity aren't good.

:04:23.:04:30.

One in six five and six-year-olds are overweight or obese,

:04:31.:04:33.

and one in three nine and ten-year-olds are.

:04:34.:04:43.

Taunton who are overweight `re more likely to become overweight adults,

:04:44.:04:50.

and that entails all the problems of diabetes, heart disease and the risk

:04:51.:04:54.

of cancer. We want children to be the right weight as children so they

:04:55.:04:57.

grow up to be a healthy weight as an adult.

:04:58.:04:59.

Education is a key part of the plan to slim down the figures,

:05:00.:05:02.

and the pupils at this school seem to know their stuff.

:05:03.:05:07.

If you are not healthy, you might get diabetes and stuff like that. It

:05:08.:05:21.

is good to eat lots of fruit and not loads of chocolate. Are you healthy?

:05:22.:05:29.

Yes. How are you healthy evdryday? Ie Eat bread in the morning, and I

:05:30.:05:38.

don't have crisps. I have bden watching this and telling mx parents

:05:39.:05:43.

about this. It can make a htge difference because the mess`ges

:05:44.:05:46.

coming to the children from ground level are and they can educ`te their

:05:47.:05:50.

parents and the community. @s soon as you start educating the children,

:05:51.:05:53.

it will seep out of the widdr world as well.

:05:54.:05:54.

There may be no quick fix for the problem,

:05:55.:05:56.

but any success in cutting the figures over the coming

:05:57.:05:59.

the years will be a step in the right direction.

:06:00.:06:02.

Less than six months after the general election,

:06:03.:06:04.

voting is once again underw`y in the parish of

:06:05.:06:06.

A by-election was called after the death of Deputy

:06:07.:06:10.

Four candidates are standing for the vacant seat,

:06:11.:06:14.

and Roisin Gauson is live at the polling station for ts now.

:06:15.:06:17.

I think slowly but surely h`s been the order of the day, althotgh

:06:18.:06:30.

things have picked up in thd last couple of hours. It is nowhdre near

:06:31.:06:34.

the levels we saw for that general election six months ago. At that

:06:35.:06:40.

point, we had the second highest turnout for the island here. We have

:06:41.:06:45.

had the latest figures for today which came through just aftdr 6pm,

:06:46.:06:50.

and that that pint just shy of 500 people had cast their vote, so

:06:51.:06:54.

nowhere near the levels we saw six months ago. But for candidates are

:06:55.:07:00.

hopeful of success here tonhght They are Gary Collins, Simon Bellamy

:07:01.:07:05.

and Rick Lowe but they do h`ve big boots to fill because this

:07:06.:07:11.

by-election comes after the sad passing of deputies Dave Jones. He

:07:12.:07:15.

was one of the longest standing politicians of Guernsey. He had been

:07:16.:07:19.

ill but believed he was getting better when he successfully stood in

:07:20.:07:23.

April this year. Of those for candidates will taste that success

:07:24.:07:27.

here tonight. Voting contintes until 8pm, and they are hopeful of a

:07:28.:07:31.

fairly quick count tonight, so we could get a result by the l`te news

:07:32.:07:34.

at 10:25pm. Jersey's finance industry added ?14

:07:35.:07:38.

billion to the UK economy l`st year, according to a report

:07:39.:07:40.

by economic consultants. Representatives from the island

:07:41.:07:43.

are in London trying to persuade UK politicians,

:07:44.:07:45.

civil servants and think tanks of the value of Jersey to the UK

:07:46.:07:47.

and the rest of Europe. The research estimates Jersdy's

:07:48.:07:52.

finance industry generates ` quarter And it suggests the island pumps

:07:53.:07:54.

?150 billion of foreign invdstment 100 years ago, a battle

:07:55.:08:00.

was raging in which men Many people are familiar

:08:01.:08:09.

with the Battle of the Sommd, but the Battle of Verdun

:08:10.:08:13.

was the longest of World War One Today the French Ambassador

:08:14.:08:16.

to the UK was in Guernsey s`y thank Verdun was the scene

:08:17.:08:21.

of the longest battle 800,000 troops were killed,

:08:22.:08:30.

wounded or missing in action. 100 years on, and the French

:08:31.:08:37.

Ambassador to the UK lays a wreath The service was to remember around

:08:38.:08:40.

240 Frenchmen living in Guernsey who served

:08:41.:08:45.

on the Western Front. At least three fell

:08:46.:08:47.

at the Battle of Verdun. A lot of the numbers have bden

:08:48.:08:57.

forgotten about over the ye`rs. It has been very much overlookdd by the

:08:58.:09:05.

occupation. Recent research, and the research is ongoing, but we now

:09:06.:09:09.

believe that there are at ldast 257 channel islanders that fell for

:09:10.:09:11.

France. And from the past to the prdsent,

:09:12.:09:13.

and at Government House the Ambassador presented Fr`nce s

:09:14.:09:15.

highest military award to vdterans This man landed on the Norm`ndy

:09:16.:09:17.

beaches on D-Day. It is terrific. I am dazzled

:09:18.:09:36.

actually. The ambassador saxs it has been a very special occasion. It is

:09:37.:09:40.

always very moving, it is always an emotional ceremony. These pdople

:09:41.:09:44.

fought to liberate our country. A day for these men

:09:45.:09:46.

and their families to remember, and for all of us to remembdr those

:09:47.:09:48.

that never returned home. Now David has the latest

:09:49.:09:54.

weather forecast. I still think we will have some of

:09:55.:10:11.

this troublesome cloud around. This was a picture from earlier today.

:10:12.:10:17.

The cloud is just about thick enough to generate a view light showers,

:10:18.:10:21.

and there are some around this evening, and there will be one or

:10:22.:10:24.

two around tomorrow. Tomorrow will see a better chance of some

:10:25.:10:28.

sunshine. Wright and mainly dry for the first half of the day, but they

:10:29.:10:32.

could be some showers later on. The main weather story at the moment is

:10:33.:10:37.

the battle between the area of low pressure over Scandinavia and the

:10:38.:10:39.

high-pressure, which is across western Britain at the moment. That

:10:40.:10:44.

won't change much over the next 24 hours, but eventually this `rea of

:10:45.:10:48.

high pressure will start to move back towards Scandinavia. Bx Friday

:10:49.:10:54.

it is beginning to weaken and move away, and by the time we get to

:10:55.:10:58.

Saturday, a new area of low pressure is coming up from the south and will

:10:59.:11:02.

squeeze up against that are` of high pressure, so freshening winds for us

:11:03.:11:07.

from the south-east. That is a good direction to see a lot of dry

:11:08.:11:11.

weather as well. There are some showers around this evening and they

:11:12.:11:15.

will tend to fade away after midnight. Largely dry in thd small

:11:16.:11:18.

hours of the morning, light winds, some missed forming first thing A

:11:19.:11:26.

bit more in the way of sunshine during the morning, more cloud

:11:27.:11:28.

coming through the afternoon, and just enough to generate the odd

:11:29.:11:35.

light shower here and there. Eventually the wind will become

:11:36.:11:36.

north-easterly. Quite promising certain conditions.

:11:37.:11:44.

Dash-macro surfing. Some fine weather around on Friday.

:11:45.:12:03.

Some nice conditions on Sattrday, then it becomes windy and more

:12:04.:12:07.

cloudy on Sunday. Have a good evening.

:12:08.:12:09.

I'll be back at 10:30pm with the late news, when we'll bring

:12:10.:12:13.

you the results of Guernsey's by-election

:12:14.:12:15.

The power of water has been used for centuries in industry. But times

:12:16.:12:34.

have changed. Across mid Devon, and the south-west, many water lills,

:12:35.:12:39.

such as this one are out of use But its owner, Brendan, wants to change

:12:40.:12:44.

that. Here is the crux of the issue. This is the lowest the water level

:12:45.:12:50.

will be this year after quite a long, dry spring and summer, but

:12:51.:12:56.

we've now got water to have 24 hours electricity capability. It's in a

:12:57.:13:03.

rural location and is very secure. This what he is proposing. Not just

:13:04.:13:10.

on his property. This new wheel in Somerset has new technology attached

:13:11.:13:14.

to it which creates hydroeldctric power, but
