The words of Adrian Lynch's family as they accept his

:00:00.:00:12.

Jersey adds ?14 billion to the UK economy, but is it spin?

:00:13.:00:23.

It is more of a PR exercise than a genuine work of economic an`lysis.

:00:24.:00:28.

Firstly, we do not know what it is. What can Guernsey's ambulance

:00:29.:00:36.

service learn from London? The family of Jersey man

:00:37.:00:43.

Adrian Lynch, who was missing for months before his body

:00:44.:00:53.

was found, say they've been brought some comfort despite being tnable

:00:54.:00:55.

to find out how he died. His inquest closed today, rtling

:00:56.:00:58.

the cause of the 20-year-old's Adrian's family say they "truly

:00:59.:01:00.

believe" it was an "unfortunate This was the moment Adrian Lynch

:01:01.:01:04.

was no longer missing. His body was found here at Handois

reservoir on the 4th August by Jersey Water employees, dight

months after he had disappe`red How or why the 20-year-old

electrician ended up there after a work Christmas party

was a mystery. And now, despite the inquest

:01:23.:01:28.

into his death being formally Adrian's family were here

:01:29.:01:30.

for the final hearing But the answers they were hoping

:01:31.:01:37.

for weren't delivered. They heard from Steven Milldr -

:01:38.:01:42.

the cab driver who picked Adrian up Mr Miller told Advocate Harris

:01:43.:01:45.

there was some confusion ovdr I did feel slightly responshble

:01:46.:01:51.

but didn't know what else to do He was quite firm about dropping

:01:52.:01:59.

him off at the road. Adrian's mother, Mameal,

:02:00.:02:01.

told Mr Miller - I want you to know The inquest heard that Jersdy Police

:02:02.:02:04.

had previously used specialhst equipment and recovery dogs

:02:05.:02:09.

to search the reservoir, but the deep water and limited

:02:10.:02:14.

access meant some areas werd unable to be properly searched, including

:02:15.:02:17.

the area where Adrian was found The forensic pathologist who carried

:02:18.:02:20.

out the postmortem told the inquest There was no evidence of injuries

:02:21.:02:23.

or third-party involvement. Dr Cook said there was no evidence

:02:24.:02:31.

to show that Ady was anywhere other than the reservoir for the dntire

:02:32.:02:34.

time he was missing. The Deputy Viscount summed tp

:02:35.:02:40.

Adrian's death as a tragic one. It's thought he lost his wax

:02:41.:02:44.

and possibly fell or stumbldd There's still lots of questhons

:02:45.:02:47.

unanswered, and no cause of death. Following today's verdict,

:02:48.:02:53.

Adrian's family released They say he will always be

:02:54.:02:55.

remembered for being a decent, funny, caring, hardworking,

:02:56.:03:23.

fun loving young man. Jersey's finance industry h`s hit

:03:24.:03:31.

back at claims the latest rdsearch into its value to the UK and EU

:03:32.:03:37.

economies is nothing but sphn. Last week, figures showed

:03:38.:03:41.

the industry added ?14 billhon to the UK economy in 2015,

:03:42.:03:45.

but a tax campaigner has described It is more of a PR exercise than a

:03:46.:03:57.

genuine work of economic an`lysis. Thusly, we do not know what the

:03:58.:04:04.

origins of the money are. Stms of money flowing through Jersex into

:04:05.:04:10.

Europe, and we need to know, is that money legitimate? Has it bedn

:04:11.:04:16.

transferred legitimately? Is it going into legitimate investment?

:04:17.:04:20.

Well, Geoff Cook is the chidf executive of Jersey Finance Limited,

:04:21.:04:23.

He joined me in the studio darlier and I started by putting to him

:04:24.:04:27.

The first thing I would say is that it is not the Jersey financhal

:04:28.:04:34.

board. In that sense, it is not marketing or spin. It is an

:04:35.:04:39.

independent report by a firl called capital economics. They advhse

:04:40.:04:46.

governments, employ 60 economists. Five were here for nearly shx months

:04:47.:04:47.

compiling the report. It is a pretty compiling the report. It is a pretty

:04:48.:04:50.

thorough piece of work. The facts are very solid. Such large sums of

:04:51.:04:59.

money. Is that really benefhcial to these economies? Do they sed that

:05:00.:05:05.

money? We provide through Jdrsey, attracting money from other parts of

:05:06.:05:12.

the world, in Jersey, it is packaged in the right vehicle and spread out

:05:13.:05:17.

correctly. In the UK's inst`nce that is 500 billion sterling. And in

:05:18.:05:24.

5% of the foreign direct investment stocks in the UK. It means ht is 5%

:05:25.:05:27.

of all the investment that comes from other countries into the UK.

:05:28.:05:30.

They goes into things like warehouses, factories and offices.

:05:31.:05:34.

Real things, supporting the real economy. What the report dodsn't

:05:35.:05:40.

show in as much detail is that there is value for Jersey is well and

:05:41.:05:45.

this. It generates jobs at home We are supporting a quarter of the jobs

in our own economy. The value of drugs seized

found ?1.3 million worth So far this year, they've

:05:52.:05:54.

seized ?3.8 million worth. In that time, 22 people havd been

:05:55.:06:01.

accused of drugs Most of them were Jersey

mouth-to-mouth. Today is a normal day in this control centre hn

:07:03.:07:04.

But as you might expect, not so much for Guernsey,

:07:05.:07:08.

where the control room is gdnerally a little quieter.

:07:09.:07:12.

Back home, our control room is a lot bigger. We have about 100 staff

:07:13.:07:20.

working power shift and we take 5000 medical calls per day. -- power

:07:21.:07:26.

That is the main difference. In Guernsey, there's about ` dozen

medical emergencies each dax. But the job of those taking

Only one call at a time, and that is the same in London.

:07:56.:07:58.

And soon the staff swap will happen the other way round.

:07:59.:08:02.

It will be useful for them to go back to London and experience the

:08:03.:08:07.

control centre there with the volume of calls and the level of rdsponses.

it's hoped they'll be better equipped to respond to medical

And all things a small camp of refugees in Greece were without -

Looking back at the work achieved in the last few weeks.

:08:31.:08:39.

This is... This is a little boy we nicknamed the Marble King.

:08:40.:08:50.

Marbles and clean clothes may

:08:51.:08:51.

not sound like much, but to the refugees at the Veria

:08:52.:08:54.

camp in northern Greece, they mean the world.

:08:55.:08:56.

They've run from the potential to be raped.

:08:57.:08:58.

They've run from a promise that "I'm going to behead

:08:59.:09:01.

So, they've packed up their meagre belongings, they've spent

:09:02.:09:05.

all the money they've got to pay a smuggler to put them

on a dangerous boat and if they make it across the water,

:09:08.:09:10.

For the last three weeks, Sarah and her team have been working

:09:11.:09:16.

to transform the lives of the refugees.

:09:17.:09:19.

They have distributed fruit, fish and yoghurts to supplelent

There were rats living in the clothing that was

So we cleaned it out, we literally washed it

:09:34.:09:37.

out with disinfectant, we painted the walls and we dressed

:09:38.:09:39.

The shop opened for the first time last week and we saw everybody in

one day, which was incredible. Musical instruments

donated while the charity was working at the camp

lifted the atmosphere. And Bridge2 volunteers added

:09:57.:09:58.

to the positivity by organising games and activities

You're up to date with the latest news for the Channel Islands.

:12:28.:12:30.

Welcome to sulk and as you can imagine, the narrow streets have

:12:31.:12:54.

been heaving with half term holiday makers and many of them verx unaware

:12:55.:12:58.

of the significance of the day's events. The weather has been quite

:12:59.:13:03.

kind with light winds and slightly leaden skies. They couldn't have

:13:04.:13:08.

been more different 100 years ago when the south-westerly wind was

:13:09.:13:11.

blowing a gale and the seas behind us not flapped like tonight but

:13:12.:13:16.

really heavy and large. It was on that day on October 27, 1916, things

:13:17.:13:22.

would change here forever. There was an early life like to call, Salcombe

:13:23.:13:29.

lifeboat headed out to sea on a rescue and that is when brothers,

:13:30.:13:32.

sons, husbands, friends and neighbours would be lost forever.

:13:33.:13:37.

15 crew were on board, 13 never came home.

:13:38.:13:40.

New audio has just emerged of one of the survivors,

:13:41.:13:46.

Eddie Distin, and with spechal permission from his family,

:13:47.:13:49.

We were called out in the morning at about 5am to a schooner `shore,

:13:50.:13:58.

We got to the wreck and then we decided that we couldn't see any

:13:59.:14:05.

life aboard so we started to come home.

:14:06.:14:09.

And of course, on the way home, we met this disaster.

:14:10.:14:14.

I am James Cooper, I'm one the crew members of Salcombe lifeboat.

:14:15.:14:17.

He was my great grandfather, a very lucky man to have survived

:14:18.:14:21.

and to carry on in the Lifeboat Institution after the disaster

:14:22.:14:26.

and he went on to have medals as well, so he was made

:14:27.:14:29.

Where we are at the moment hs pretty much where they capsized and he made

:14:30.:14:37.

a couple of attempts to comd in but because it was so rough,

:14:38.:14:40.

We wouldn't attempt to come in over the bar, the big sea caught us

:14:41.:14:48.

All 15 got back on the bottom but then we couldn't stay

:14:49.:14:54.

13 drowned and luckily two survived and I am one of the descend`nts

:14:55.:15:00.

I was washed ashore and that is where I got

:15:01.:15:07.

knocked about pretty badly, from here to there, the sea

:15:08.:15:10.

got me and pushed me up there and then it pushed me back.

:15:11.:15:13.

I'm Andrea Helmsley and my grandfather James Cannon was lost

:15:14.:15:19.

I was not born at the time and my mother was only four

:15:20.:15:26.

and a half but I learned the story from her.

:15:27.:15:30.

They launched the boat and because the men had alrdady been

:15:31.:15:33.

rescued from the other boat, it was so dreadful that thex went

:15:34.:15:36.

out unnecessarily in such awful conditions and the other thhng that

:15:37.:15:40.

stands out in my mind is that the families were w`tching

:15:41.:15:43.

from the cliff side and saw the whole thing unfold with the boat

:15:44.:15:47.

tipping over and that must be unimaginable to bear, reallx.

:15:48.:15:50.

And the aftermath, really, of finding the bodies

:15:51.:15:53.

I didn't know that my grand`d's body was found on the slipway

:15:54.:16:00.

where the boat had been launched at Southsands.

:16:01.:16:04.

I don't think my mother knew that. If she did, she didn't tell me that.

:16:05.:16:08.

Because I played very happily on that beach as a child.

:16:09.:16:10.

That affected me greatly, going back to that beach

:16:11.:16:12.

and realising that is where he had been found.

:16:13.:16:15.

If I could have met him now, and had a chat with him,

:16:16.:16:18.

it would be interesting to sit down and talk to him.

:16:19.:16:20.

Obviously, you could say to him, you were lucky,

:16:21.:16:23.

But then, we probably would have gone on to how much it has changed

:16:24.:16:28.

and what we have got now colpared to what we had and he would have

:16:29.:16:32.

said we are all soft compared to them.

:16:33.:16:34.

They were brave men. Brave men.

:16:35.:16:37.

The disaster was one of the worst in the history of the RNLI.

:16:38.:16:46.

Salcombe has been remembering them today. A town very much in shock

:16:47.:16:51.

because many of the people were watching as the disaster unfolded.

:16:52.:16:56.

They have also been remembering the bravery, continuing bravery of RNLI

:16:57.:16:58.

crew men today. John Danks has been at servhces

:16:59.:17:02.

of remembrance on land and `t sea. The RNLI flag flew at half-last

outside Holy Trinity church SINGING # Bridge over

:17:07.:17:17.

troubled waters. Inside, a packed congregation

:17:18.:17:26.

gathered to pay tribute to the lifeboat men who died

:17:27.:17:29.

100 years ago. Just after 10.20am a minute's

:17:30.:17:32.

silence marked the time that the William and Emma c`psized

:17:33.:17:34.

on Salcombe bar. Descendants of the lifeboat crew

:17:35.:17:37.

attended the service. We just like to show some rdspect

:17:38.:17:39.

to the Salcombe lifeboat crdw and it's a part of their falily

:17:40.:17:42.

history and it's wonderful to meet so many distant relatives

:17:43.:17:45.

from Australia and all around the world today, so it's bedn

:17:46.:17:47.

a wonderful day. And such a lovely tribute to pay

:17:48.:17:49.

for everyone who passed awax on that day.

:17:50.:17:55.

Very nice, very honoured, lovely. Salcombe's all-weather lifeboat

:17:56.:17:59.

alongside the Plymouth lifeboat led a flotilla of older RNLH vessels

:18:00.:18:03.

to the site of the tragedy. They were joined overhead

:18:04.:18:08.

by the coastguard search and rescue Then, in much calmer waters

:18:09.:18:12.

than a century ago, wreaths You can only imagine

:18:13.:18:19.

what it was like a hundred when 13 members of a small

:18:20.:18:26.

community, Salcombe, a vill`ge that had already lost so many people

:18:27.:18:29.

in the First World War, The impact, there were brothers

:18:30.:18:32.

there were fathers and sons. And today, it is very much

:18:33.:18:38.

a community service still. Volunteers helping

:18:39.:18:40.

our fellows at sea. A lone piper played

:18:41.:18:48.

a lament as the flotilla This community has changed

:18:49.:18:51.

beyond recognition since 1906, but the ethos of the life-s`vers

:18:52.:18:56.

who serve it remain We have already heard from one of

:18:57.:19:19.

the survivor's family, James, I am interested, how you feel today went?

:19:20.:19:26.

I think it went very well. Now glad they have been given a good sendoff

:19:27.:19:31.

and it was done in the right manner. Hopefully all the descendants of the

:19:32.:19:35.

deceased and this survivors have been given the right commemoration

:19:36.:19:40.

they should've been. Incredhble to see the archive pictures of what the

:19:41.:19:42.

lifeboat looked like and thd different lifeboat you have today.

:19:43.:19:46.

Can you imagine going out in those heavy seas to that rescue 100 years

:19:47.:19:52.

ago? First, you had to get to the boat, and wrote it, compared to what

:19:53.:19:56.

we have got now, completely different ball game. They wdre men.

:19:57.:20:04.

A lot different to how we h`ve it. Being the coxswain of the S`lcombe

:20:05.:20:08.

lifeboat, that Salcombe bar is very difficult to navigate even with the

:20:09.:20:13.

technology today. We have a very different lifeboat today th`n 1 0

:20:14.:20:16.

years ago, but the weather can be the same and the challenges are

:20:17.:20:21.

getting in across the bar in poor weather, although we have got the

:20:22.:20:25.

speed and we try to come in on a single wave, but occasionally, we

:20:26.:20:31.

look at the bar and we will head towards Plymouth or Brixham because

:20:32.:20:35.

it is too dangerous to come in. All the crew are trained for poor

:20:36.:20:39.

weather, entering back into sulking, any risk at all, we go to Plymouth

:20:40.:20:46.

or Brixham. This makes many people think not just of Salcombe `s a

:20:47.:20:50.

holiday town but very different there was a real heart here. It has

:20:51.:20:56.

been an important day for the community, Salcombe is a lifeboat

:20:57.:21:01.

town. What we wanted to do hs to make sure that we honour thd memory

:21:02.:21:05.

of our colleagues from 1916 and make sure they are never forgottdn and I

:21:06.:21:10.

think we have done that. Trdmendous support from holiday-makers as they

:21:11.:21:16.

watched the flotilla. Yes. What struck me, given we had been

:21:17.:21:20.

planning it from the start, what it would be like now if our bo`t went

:21:21.:21:25.

out and 13 men today didn't come back. It would be devastating. Thank

:21:26.:21:37.

you for inviting us to cover this. From a centenary commemorathon to an

:21:38.:21:39.

annual remembrance as we he`d towards Remembrance Day.

On board, a giant poppy that was being delivered

:21:56.:21:58.

to Admiral Sir Mark Stanhopd, marking the official launch

:21:59.:22:02.

of the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal in Devon.

:22:03.:22:06.

It was then from the air to the sea that the universal symbol

:22:07.:22:09.

of remembrance and hope was taken to the heritage centre wherd,

:22:10.:22:12.

for the first time, an official partnership was signed

:22:13.:22:16.

between the Royal Navy here in the south west,

:22:17.:22:19.

The document allows us to r`ise awareness and allows us

:22:20.:22:25.

to fundraise and do the things we already do but it just ghves us

:22:26.:22:29.

that extra added piece of significance which is important

:22:30.:22:32.

to us and to the Royal Brithsh Legion.

:22:33.:22:35.

It is a really good opportunity to raise awareness about wh`t we do.

:22:36.:22:41.

You have seen the pageantry here today with the standard bearers

:22:42.:22:45.

but we do so much more apart from remembrance.

:22:46.:22:49.

It gives us an opportunity to bring that down to the modern

:22:50.:22:52.

It was the deafening sound of the cannons that launched this

:22:53.:23:01.

Charlestown played host this afternoon to the double-masted

:23:02.:23:07.

Phoenix, one of the stars of the TV series Poldark.

:23:08.:23:10.

Then hundreds of people lindd the harbour-side to catch

:23:11.:23:13.

a glimpse of the poppies th`t had adorned her masts.

:23:14.:23:18.

It is the first time I've sden it. I just returned back to Cornwall

:23:19.:23:21.

to live and I wouldn't have missed it for the world.

:23:22.:23:24.

It really is and it's so appropriate that it is such an old ship.

:23:25.:23:29.

Tradition was the order of the day and fittingly,

:23:30.:23:37.

it was some local shanty singers who entertained the crowds.

:23:38.:23:41.

Another important day coming up but it has been an incredible hhstoric

:23:42.:24:06.

day here in Salcombe for thd whole community. Being here and looking

:24:07.:24:11.

out to sea, it makes you understand how the elements of life can change

:24:12.:24:16.

in an instant. A very moving day in Salcombe. It has been a fairly calm

:24:17.:24:28.

day today. Compare this timd last year and the year before, wd are

:24:29.:24:32.

quite lucky at the moment, some quiet weather.

:24:33.:24:36.

This was first liked this morning. -- first light.

:24:37.:24:53.

Tomorrow, a similar dated today Some mist and fog patches, slow to

:24:54.:25:01.

clear. Disappointingly cloudy at times but at least it is mild. Not a

:25:02.:25:10.

huge right to change, a bit boring frost keeps saying the same message

:25:11.:25:13.

but I suppose it good news hf you are out and about. Some clott to the

:25:14.:25:18.

north of us capable of prodtcing some rain. This area of high

:25:19.:25:24.

pressure pretty strong and ht dominates the weather as we move

:25:25.:25:28.

into the weekend. Trapped whthin it, a fair amount of cloud, espdcially

:25:29.:25:32.

Saturday and Sunday and that doesn't change as we move into the darlier

:25:33.:25:36.

part of next week. Perhaps on Monday, a better chance to see some

:25:37.:25:41.

sunshine has been very limited indeed today. You could just about

:25:42.:25:45.

make out sticking out of thd top of the moors, some of the highdst tours

:25:46.:25:49.

seeing above the cloud briefly some sunshine. This was Plymouth sound,

:25:50.:25:58.

not a lot of brightness. Calm seas. Relatively quiet conditions for all

:25:59.:26:03.

of our coastal communities. Not much of the sea running now, the high

:26:04.:26:06.

pressure has been with us for awhile and it is likely to stay with us as

:26:07.:26:12.

we into the weekend. It is puiet, cabbage of the sea is betwedn 1 and

:26:13.:26:19.

15 degrees. We could do with a bit more in the way of sunshine. A lot

:26:20.:26:21.

of clout staying overnight. Just allowing those temperatures to

:26:22.:26:35.

get into single figures. Tolorrow, another very similar day. A lot of

:26:36.:26:41.

cloud, a few shallow mist or fog patches, the clouds stubborn to

:26:42.:26:44.

break but in a few places, H think it will let the sunshine in. Top

:26:45.:26:49.

temperature similar to the day at 14 or 15 degrees.

:26:50.:27:04.

I will be back with the latd news but from all of us in the studio,

:27:05.:27:37.

have a good evening.

:27:38.:27:41.
