Welcome to BBC Channel Islands. These are Friday's headlines:

:00:00.:00:00.

Guernsey's population is growing, but not in the right directhon.

:00:00.:00:12.

Bedding in for business - an industry once worth

:00:13.:00:14.

multi-millions struggles to stay afloat.

:00:15.:00:24.

Dawah ourselves and at least two other people in the market here

:00:25.:00:30.

They have now stopped trainhng and it is only as left on the island. #

:00:31.:00:32.

there were. California dreaming -

:00:33.:00:34.

Jersey's cricketers get ready And with Halloween weekend fast

:00:35.:00:42.

approaching, I will be letthng you know whether it will be dry if

:00:43.:00:46.

you're out trick-or-treating. The full forecast later in the

:00:47.:00:47.

programme. Guernsey's working

:00:48.:00:51.

population has fallen. The latest figures from the States

:00:52.:00:56.

show that there's been a drop in the number of people

:00:57.:00:58.

aged between 16 and 64. It comes at a time when the number

:00:59.:01:02.

of pensioners is increasing. Mike Wilkins reports

:01:03.:01:05.

on the demographic time bomb. At the end of last year,

:01:06.:01:12.

Guernsey's population was 62,50 , It is the largest

:01:13.:01:14.

increase in five years. But it is not necessarily in the age

:01:15.:01:19.

group that the Government is hoping. The number of pensioners

:01:20.:01:23.

is increasing, but critically, the working age

:01:24.:01:25.

population has fallen. It may sometimes feel like there's

:01:26.:01:28.

a lot of people pounding the pavements in town,

:01:29.:01:31.

but last year, the working `ge group And when you look back further,

:01:32.:01:34.

almost 2000 people have been lost from this group over

:01:35.:01:41.

the last five years. That's a lot of people who could be

:01:42.:01:43.

paying income tax. So why is the working

:01:44.:01:48.

population declining? Some feel there isn't enough

:01:49.:01:51.

diversity in the economy for younger workers, while others feel

:01:52.:01:53.

the island's restrictive This woman is responsible

:01:54.:01:55.

for Employment and Social Sdcurity. She says it's unclear

:01:56.:02:02.

if the population management regime will help when it comes

:02:03.:02:04.

into force in April. I'm sort of getting mixed mdssages,

:02:05.:02:18.

because I hear some negativhty about some of the population. I think

:02:19.:02:23.

because we are not there yet and it will not come into force until next

:02:24.:02:28.

April, people are starting to have some concerns about certain elements

:02:29.:02:31.

of that policy. I think it hs one of those things that until we `ctually

:02:32.:02:37.

enter the policy, it will bd work in progress.

:02:38.:02:38.

It's long been forecast that Guernsey would have an ageing

:02:39.:02:41.

population, but now, what were future forecasts

:02:42.:02:42.

are playing out as problems in the present.

:02:43.:02:47.

Jersey's mail order plant industry has shrunk by almost two thhrds

:02:48.:02:52.

A recent farming statistic report showed revenue fell from ovdr

:02:53.:02:54.

?23 million in 2012 to just over ?8 million last year.

:02:55.:03:00.

It is the lasting effect of the loss of low value consignment relief

:03:01.:03:03.

There is now only one business still trading,

:03:04.:03:06.

Only a few years ago, businesses like this one in Jersey

:03:07.:03:14.

were generating tens of millions of pounds.

:03:15.:03:17.

But now that value has fallen by 70%.

:03:18.:03:24.

That is pretty much entirelx down to the loss of low value consignment

:03:25.:03:31.

relief. There were ourselves and at least two other people in the market

:03:32.:03:34.

here, they have now stopped trading here, they have now stopped trading

:03:35.:03:38.

and it is only us left. We had to cut costs and Ledson people go. I

:03:39.:03:43.

just our prices, obviously when you just our prices, obviously when you

:03:44.:03:48.

put prices up, sales go down. So that is the biggest change hn the

:03:49.:03:56.

could have prevented this if they could have prevented this if they

:03:57.:04:01.

had acted more quickly. I think if we dealt with it differentlx at the

:04:02.:04:07.

time, we probably could havd got a better deal for locally grown

:04:08.:04:11.

product. But by the time th`t had happened, the case had alre`dy

:04:12.:04:16.

started and I think... That is despite acknowledging the v`lue this

:04:17.:04:20.

industry brings to this isl`nd. Politicians say there is nothing

:04:21.:04:24.

they can do to support its future. It is unfortunate, there is nothing

:04:25.:04:28.

I would like more than to sde that industry continue. It emploxs lots

:04:29.:04:32.

of people and brings money hnto the island. We have fought as h`rd as we

:04:33.:04:36.

could to keep it going, we won't to the High Court, spent a lot of money

:04:37.:04:39.

on top lawyers, we could not secure it, the judge made this dechsion and

:04:40.:04:45.

we are left with the conseqtences. Although many have stopped trading

:04:46.:04:47.

in the island, this one rem`ining company hopes to grow the industry

:04:48.:04:51.

even without the help of Jersey s Government.

:04:52.:04:54.

Alderney States will pay up to ?120,000

:04:55.:04:56.

to provide an extra 150 flights to Guernsey

:04:57.:04:58.

It says it's in a bid to boost economic activity

:04:59.:05:03.

The Government's underwriting the flights and says that if

:05:04.:05:08.

Aurigny puts on the flights and they're sold out,

:05:09.:05:10.

then it won't cost the Statds of Alderney anything.

:05:11.:05:14.

Described as the "largest t`x evasion network in the world" -

:05:15.:05:18.

Guernsey and Jersey have cole under fire in the House of Commons.

:05:19.:05:22.

The UK Shadow Home Secretarx, Diane Abbott, criticised

:05:23.:05:24.

the Crown Dependencies and Overseas British Territories

:05:25.:05:27.

during a debate on a bill about financial crime -

:05:28.:05:30.

looking at issues like monex laundering and tax evasion.

:05:31.:05:33.

The MP said there needs to be more focus on places

:05:34.:05:36.

If you're missing the view of a golf ball-like structure

:05:37.:05:51.

in Jersey's skyline since the weather radar was removed

:05:52.:05:53.

this summer - don't worry, a similar one has been

:05:54.:05:55.

A 2.5 tonne fibreglass dome was lifted

:05:56.:06:00.

onto the airport's new flight radar at Les Platons this morning.

:06:01.:06:04.

The ?2 million investment will protect the tracking epuipment

:06:05.:06:07.

from the weather, as well as use less energy

:06:08.:06:10.

Frame Football is coming to Jersey this weekend.

:06:11.:06:15.

It's a sport which enables people with disabilities to play

:06:16.:06:18.

It's proved popular in the TK, where leagues are now played.

:06:19.:06:23.

Now a Jersey football coach has teamed up

:06:24.:06:26.

with the Cerebral Palsy Sport organisation to hold an event

:06:27.:06:29.

at Springfield tomorrow in the hope it will develop into

:06:30.:06:31.

I came across frame football through Twitter. I saw some features on it.

:06:32.:06:47.

It really got my imagination. I have been really pleased by the

:06:48.:06:51.

progressive nature of the rdsponses I have had. There seems to be real

:06:52.:06:53.

enthusiasm on the island to promote enthusiasm on the island to promote

:06:54.:06:55.

disability sports. Jersey's cricketers

:06:56.:06:56.

are in Los Angeles, hoping to win promotion to the highest level

:06:57.:06:58.

in their history. They play their first match

:06:59.:07:00.

in World League Four Our sports editor Tim Pryor looks

:07:01.:07:02.

ahead to the tournament. Jersey won the right to plax in this

:07:03.:07:07.

six-team event by clinching the Division Five trophy on

:07:08.:07:10.

home turf back in the summer. They beat their near neighbours

:07:11.:07:13.

and rivals Guernsey on their way to the title, but now they leave

:07:14.:07:16.

the home comforts of Grainvhlle Farmers Field and the indoor

:07:17.:07:19.

training centre Jersey have played at this level

:07:20.:07:20.

twice before and on both occasions There's an optimism, though, that

:07:21.:07:26.

this time could be different. This time, I feel like we h`ve

:07:27.:07:39.

worked really hard and we h`ve a bit more experience. There are ` lot of

:07:40.:07:43.

youngsters in the squad but we have had experience of these tournaments

:07:44.:07:44.

now. And what an opportunity to play

:07:45.:07:45.

cricket on the international stage, just a dozen miles down

:07:46.:07:48.

the road from Hollywood. Oman, Bermuda, Italy,

:07:49.:07:50.

Denmark and the hosts America stand in the way of promotion

:07:51.:07:52.

to Jersey's highest level ever. You might think it a daunting

:07:53.:07:56.

prospect - especially playing the USA with its population of 20

:07:57.:07:59.

milion to choose players from - but Jersey did beat America before,

:08:00.:08:03.

back in 2008, and now look forward to trying

:08:04.:08:06.

to beat them again. -- 320 million. Massively excited.

:08:07.:08:18.

Have done a lot of prep going into this. Excited to see that all the

:08:19.:08:22.

hard work pays off. Looking forward to it.

:08:23.:08:24.

Included in Jersey's squad are teenagers Harrison Carlxon

:08:25.:08:26.

and Jonty Jenner, hopeful of becoming Hollywood's newest stars.

:08:27.:08:29.

And we'll have highlights and reaction from Los Angelds

:08:30.:08:36.

here on BBC Channel Island News over the next week, and the very latest

:08:37.:08:39.

From Los Angeles to New Zealand now -

:08:40.:08:45.

and Guernsey sportsmen are benefiting from the knowledge

:08:46.:08:47.

and experience of a former Olympian this weekend.

:08:48.:08:50.

Kiwi Caroline Powell took team bronze in London 2012

:08:51.:08:53.

for equestrian eventing, and now she's in Guernsey,

:08:54.:08:56.

hoping to shape the stars of the future.

:08:57.:08:58.

Taking tips from a trainer at the top of her game.

:08:59.:09:07.

In the world of equestrian dventing, Caroline Powell has

:09:08.:09:09.

Now this Olympic medallist hs giving something back, with a thred-day

:09:10.:09:13.

intensive training course for riders in Guernsey.

:09:14.:09:18.

The interest in these things is immense.

:09:19.:09:20.

I think it's gaining inform`tion from someone of this experidnce

:09:21.:09:32.

It's valuable to everyone and the membership certainlx gets

:09:33.:09:34.

Riders of all ages and abilhties have signed up, and will be put

:09:35.:09:38.

through their paces in the three eventing disciplines of dressage,

:09:39.:09:41.

Seeing horses and riders improve and seeing the jockeys have those

:09:42.:09:47.

light bulb moments and the horses enjoying it and getting

:09:48.:09:50.

the stimulation into the whole training process -

:09:51.:09:53.

you know, every horse has a different learning pattern,

:09:54.:09:55.

and just working them out - I get a lot of satisfaction out

:09:56.:09:58.

of it and just seeing the gtys walk out of the arena with a big

:09:59.:10:02.

smile of their face is quite important for me.

:10:03.:10:05.

It's a rare opportunity for riders in Guernsey,

:10:06.:10:07.

who don't often get the chance to work with international

:10:08.:10:09.

We only ever get one person every year, or even every two years,

:10:10.:10:17.

so there hasn't been anybodx for a couple of years, really.

:10:18.:10:20.

So it's really good that she's come over.

:10:21.:10:22.

Caroline has been impressed with what she's seen so far.

:10:23.:10:24.

So much so that there are plans to make these training sesshons

:10:25.:10:27.

Roisin Gauson, BBC Channel Hslands News, Guernsey.

:10:28.:10:35.

The weather's been feeling rather eerie this week

:10:36.:10:37.

ahead of Halloween, so, Bee, what does

:10:38.:10:38.

And looks like it will be another mild Halloween, the third one in a

:10:39.:10:52.

row. But it will not be amazing sunshine this weekend. It whll be

:10:53.:10:57.

dry. Slowly it will brighten up and we will see is mist and fog

:10:58.:11:00.

tomorrow, then some decent of sunshine. Very quiet weather across

:11:01.:11:05.

our patch over the next few days, thanks to this area of high

:11:06.:11:09.

pressure. Very little changd over the weekend. There is a lot of cloud

:11:10.:11:15.

trapped underneath at high so it will not be beautiful blue skies.

:11:16.:11:20.

But it should start to break in places. Keeping a solid laydr of

:11:21.:11:24.

cloud tonight, it should be dry the cloud will at times so that could be

:11:25.:11:30.

some mist and fog. But not ` cold night, temperatures of Maind or ten.

:11:31.:11:34.

So another great start to the day tomorrow. One to light showdrs. For

:11:35.:11:39.

most, it will be dry. The bdst chance of sunshine will be hnto the

:11:40.:11:43.

afternoon. Where you get sole breaks in the cloud, it could be qtite

:11:44.:11:49.

mild. 12 spots could hit 15 Celsius. Here are the times of high water for

:11:50.:11:56.

tomorrow. Not much in the w`ke of waves for the surfers. Slightly

:11:57.:12:00.

larger out towards the West but clean conditions all round. Here is

:12:01.:12:09.

the coastal waters forecast. A lot of cloud tomorrow, low cloud and

:12:10.:12:15.

mist first thing so visibilhty picking up as we had through the

:12:16.:12:20.

day. Halloween weekend, you can expect quite an eerie night on

:12:21.:12:23.

Saturday. Quite a lot of cloud tomorrow and that will lower through

:12:24.:12:27.

Saturday night into Sunday lorning. Some mist and fog at times. Sunday

:12:28.:12:34.

will be dry, a lot of cloud, more brightness compared to Saturday

:12:35.:12:38.

That continues into Monday for Halloween itself, it should be

:12:39.:12:41.

night, again, the risk of some mist night, again, the risk of some mist

:12:42.:12:48.

and fog. But staying mild. I will be back with your he`dlights

campaigners fighting to re-open the airport would need ?9 mhllion

still re-open the airport, despite the fact no public

:14:36.:14:37.

is it viable or not? Various studies have reached

opposing views, so all parthes have been banking on a new Government

said we would like to see rdgional air connectivity fund

:15:28.:15:29.

so for them to come back and say we don't see how it could be vhable

:15:30.:15:33.

without support in the earlx days, it just seems to me

:15:34.:15:36.

a strange kind of language. Fly Plymouth maintain

they could reopen the airport without any subsidy,

:15:40.:15:41.

yet the plan they submitted to the Department for Transport

:15:42.:15:43.

would require ?4 million in Government loans at launch

:20:05.:20:07.

is about to swap the waves of Polzeath for the tropical

:20:08.:20:11.

waters of Fiji. Alex Murray has been selectdd

:20:12.:20:12.

for Team GB to compete at the rather long-titled -

:20:13.:20:15.

Fiji International Surfing Association's World Standup Paddle

:20:16.:20:17.

and paddleboard championships. As Johnny Rutherford

:20:18.:20:19.

has been finding out, Alex Murray is passionate about the

:20:20.:20:34.

boards he makes. And his passion doesn't stop there. He knows just

:20:35.:20:39.

how to get the best out of them He came second in the national paddle

:20:40.:20:43.

board competition. Now he h`s been scooped up by Team GB to colpete in

:20:44.:20:51.

the World Championships in Fiji I am as prepared as I can be, bearing

in mind I have never served there before and I will be up agahnst the

been training for the past ten months or so. Mostly here at

:21:07.:21:12.

Polzeath and some days it h`s its day. Obviously, the conditions today

:21:13.:21:16.

are not brilliant but the great thing about paddle surfing hs that

:21:17.:21:19.

you can go in any conditions. But in Fiji, the words are that thd weights

:21:20.:21:26.

can be frighteningly big and this is the first time for Alex and his

:21:27.:21:30.

first trip to Fiji. Everybody has really wound me up about how scary

:21:31.:21:34.

it is going to be but I am just going to try to do my best `nd

:21:35.:21:37.

hopefully with the adrenaline of the other guys around me it will give me

:21:38.:21:42.

a bit more encouragement to take off on one of the biggest waves I have

:21:43.:21:47.

ever served in my life. Frol the age of 12, Alex always favoured surfing

:21:48.:21:50.

over other water sport dischplines he tried, until you had it go at

:21:51.:21:55.

stand-up paddle surfing. Thd beauty of the stand-up paddle board is that

:22:00.:22:02.

to go in for a very short sdssion and get as many waves as I want

:22:03.:22:06.

because I am per this out. Ht also gives me a lot more power when I'm

:22:07.:22:10.

doing my turns. The feeling is fantastic. It is like surfing but on

:22:11.:22:18.

another level to surfing. 200 athletes from 30 nations gather to

:22:19.:22:22.

compete in Fiji, which starts on the 12th of November.

:22:23.:22:29.

Before we go to the weather with Bee - let's head back to Exeter

:22:30.:22:31.

Fire fighters remain on the scene of the Clarence Hotel,

:22:32.:22:36.

almost 14 hours after first being called to the fire

:22:37.:22:40.

Tonight part of the city centre remains cordoned off.

:22:41.:22:44.

Let's go live to Hamish Marshall for the latest.

:22:45.:22:52.

The latest information I am told is there are 27 pumping appliances here

:22:53.:22:59.

in Exeter, trying to tackle this fire this evening. Just takd a few

:23:00.:23:03.

moments ago, I can still sed flames coming out from the Royal Clarence

:23:04.:23:07.

Hotel. It is a big job. And through the day, thousands of gallons of

:23:08.:23:11.

water had been used. And in fact, down at the river a special pump has

:23:12.:23:17.

been put into the water there to bring water from the river tp hoses

:23:18.:23:22.

through the city centre to help tackle this blaze and peopld living

:23:23.:23:25.

in Exeter are being asked to do what they can to use as little w`ter as

:23:26.:23:30.

possible because so much of the city's resources have been tsed on

:23:31.:23:34.

that today. I am told that firefighters will be here rhght

:23:35.:23:37.

throughout the weekend. Ple`se officers from across Devon `nd

:23:38.:23:40.

Cornwall have been drafted hn. They will be manning cordons as well but

:23:41.:23:44.

it is hoped part of the citx centre will be open for people to shop

:23:45.:23:48.

tomorrow. As for a cause, rdnovation work on the art gallery next door, I

:23:49.:23:52.

am told, is one possible catse. One other thing to read tonight, no one

:23:53.:23:56.

has been injured. OK, many thanks, Hamish.

:23:57.:23:58.

It is not looking too bad. H should be able to get out on my broom for

:23:59.:24:10.

Halloween. Pretty much the same as the next few days. We have had very

:24:11.:24:15.

grey skies. This sent from one of our weather watchers this morning

:24:16.:24:18.

and very little changes over the coming days. It will stay mhld this

:24:19.:24:22.

weekend. An awful lot of cloud about. On balance, more clotd than

:24:23.:24:26.

sunshine, and again we will see is Kali mist and fog. The reason for is

:24:27.:24:31.

we have got high-pressure anchored across the UK. There is no change

:24:32.:24:35.

over the coming days. A lot of cloud trapped underneath that high, so not

:24:36.:24:36.

much in the way of rainfall but much in the way of rainfall but

:24:37.:24:40.

certainly a good deal of cloud. Quite a bit of Lookout as wdll,

:24:41.:24:43.

mornings. Halloween, it shotld be mornings. Halloween, it shotld be

:24:44.:24:47.

dry, a little bit more sunshine compared with the weekend and

:24:48.:24:49.

against is overnight mist and fog and you can see from the satellite

:24:50.:24:53.

picture just how much cloud we have had today. It has been breaking up

:24:54.:24:58.

in places, so I think there has been some bright spells but generally it

:24:59.:25:00.

is going to be quite cloudy as we had to tonight and that clotd will

:25:01.:25:04.

lower salt mist, he'll fog xet again, the odd spot of drizzle but I

:25:05.:25:08.

think most places will be dry. With all of that cloud, it will not be a

:25:09.:25:12.

cold night. We could get down into single figures in the countryside.

:25:13.:25:18.

For most, those of 10-11dC. A great start to the day tomorrow. Some

:25:19.:25:22.

drizzle. Most places dry. It will slowly brighten as we go through the

:25:23.:25:25.

day. We will see some sunshhne coming and going. The best bet of

:25:26.:25:30.

sunshine on high ground. Whdre you do get the brightness, it could well

:25:31.:25:35.

Celsius above what we would expect Celsius above what we would expect

:25:36.:25:38.

for the time of year. Height of around 15 Celsius. So I think as we

:25:39.:25:43.

head towards the Isles of Scilly, it will stay largely dry. Again, and of

:25:44.:25:47.

a lot of cloud but also somd bright spells into the afternoon. Here are

:25:48.:25:55.

the times of high water. In terms of surfing, not a great deal of waves.

:25:56.:26:01.

Slightly more on the north coast. Further south, one to two foot and

:26:02.:26:06.

clean. For our coastal waters, winds east to sell easterly, thred to

:26:07.:26:11.

four. Fairweather after any mist and fog and the visibility good. By

:26:12.:26:15.

Halloween itself, dry but cloudy. You can expect some sunshind through

:26:16.:26:19.

the afternoon. Quite eerie overnight, actually. Once again we

:26:20.:26:23.

will see some mist and fog so perfectly for the trick or treat is

:26:24.:26:27.

out there. Very quiet as we head to the coming days. A lot of cloud as

:26:28.:26:32.

I have mentioned. As we go through the weekend, we have some e`rly mist

:26:33.:26:37.

and fog tomorrow. The cloud will be big and it could give the odd spot

:26:38.:26:40.

of drizzle but for most of ht will be dry. Into the afternoon, we

:26:41.:26:44.

should see some decent spells of sunshine. Those temperatures doing

:26:45.:26:50.

well. At this time of year, we would expect- around 11-12dC. We will

:26:51.:26:53.

probably get the mid teens tomorrow. By Saturday night, if you'rd out and

:26:54.:26:57.

about coming to be dry. A lot of cloud so quite a mild night and that

:26:58.:27:00.

does mean Britain on Sunday, we will seize early mist and fog. Fhgure

:27:01.:27:05.

cloud on Sunday. So let brightness will stop but again, where xou do

:27:06.:27:09.

get some breaks, it is cert`inly not going to be cold and it looks like

:27:10.:27:13.

actually as we had into the side of next week things are staying

:27:14.:27:17.

settled. Super Halloween itself another dry day with some bright

:27:18.:27:21.

spells and staying mild. Back to you.

:27:22.:27:24.

The experiment indeed. That is just about it from us. I will be back

:27:25.:27:29.

with the late news including all of the latest from the fire on

:27:30.:27:34.

Cathedral Green in Exeter. Of course, that is at 10:30pm here on

:27:35.:27:38.

lovely evening and a good wdekend. lovely evening and a good wdekend.
