20's education committee survives a so it's goodbye from me

:00:00.:00:15.

20's education committee survives a vote of no-confidence.

:00:16.:00:17.

Two islands, one big row - calls for fairer fishing fees.

:00:18.:00:20.

Bigamy and execution - archives reveal Jersey's dark past.

:00:21.:00:30.

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

:00:31.:00:37.

also they tell the stories of the people who lived here. And we have

:00:38.:00:42.

got some unsettled and wintry weather coming our way over the next

:00:43.:00:47.

few days, but will we see any snow across the islands? I will have the

:00:48.:00:48.

full forecast. Guernsey's Education Committee has

:00:49.:00:53.

survived a vote of no confidence. States members voted 22 -

:00:54.:00:56.

13 against the motion placed by Deputy Emilie Yerby and signed

:00:57.:00:59.

by six other members. She's one of the new faces

:01:00.:01:04.

in the government. And Deputy Emilie Yerby has been

:01:05.:01:18.

leading an attempt to take down the Committee for Education,

:01:19.:01:22.

Sport and Culture. One of its members,

:01:23.:01:26.

Deputy Mark Leadbeater, And Deputy Yerby says

:01:27.:01:28.

she can't understand how I have said that this particular

:01:29.:01:41.

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

:01:42.:01:45.

forward, but has said in so many words that non-selection... I don't

:01:46.:01:51.

understand how they feel they can do it.

:01:52.:01:52.

But, in the States today, the remaining members

:01:53.:01:54.

Its Vice President says, despite all the pressure,

:01:55.:01:58.

We have difference of opinion in the selection debate, but in most things

:01:59.:02:08.

we have been unanimous in our decisions and we work well together,

:02:09.:02:13.

we have a balance. We can come back with a proposal that appeals to both

:02:14.:02:16.

sides of the house. You don't want to have five non-selection lists

:02:17.:02:22.

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

:02:23.:02:23.

back as a proposal. After a day's debate

:02:24.:02:25.

in the States' Chamber, So the Committee for Education,

:02:26.:02:28.

Sport and Culture survives But it's been a politically bruising

:02:29.:02:32.

start to the new year. Fishermen in Jersey claim they're

:02:33.:02:39.

being persecuted and effectively prevented from fishing

:02:40.:02:42.

in Guernsey waters. They say a fee of ?500 to renew

:02:43.:02:45.

current licences is unfair Guernsey fishermen don't have to pay

:02:46.:02:48.

for their own licence renewals. Alison Moss has been

:02:49.:02:54.

following the story. It's a complicated issue,

:02:55.:02:58.

and disputes between the two islands fishing industries have been rolling

:02:59.:03:01.

on for many years, but this latest row centres on an administrative fee

:03:02.:03:05.

of ?500 to renew a licence allowing fishing boats to work in Guernsey

:03:06.:03:10.

waters between three and twelve For the boats who fish in the area,

:03:11.:03:13.

it's frustrating and they're looking If we can believe the rhetoric that

:03:14.:03:31.

the islands are trying to work together, and I hope that is the

:03:32.:03:37.

case, then it should be a political matter to simply resolve this and

:03:38.:03:43.

have that ?500 fee removed. I think that is the way to go. When Jersey

:03:44.:03:47.

fishermen have asked for an explanation of what the ?500

:03:48.:03:53.

actually represents, they are told that it is a political decision to

:03:54.:03:56.

charge it to Jersey fishermen. The main issue is that Jersey fishermen

:03:57.:04:03.

feel it is unfair that they have to pay the charge and Guernsey

:04:04.:04:08.

fishermen don't. The state of Guernsey have decided to subsidise

:04:09.:04:11.

their fishermen so they don't have too pay. The department responsible

:04:12.:04:15.

here in Jersey says they are aware of the issues which have arisen, and

:04:16.:04:20.

they are currently discussing it. But the fish Association want them

:04:21.:04:24.

to step in and talk to the authorities in Guernsey. I genuinely

:04:25.:04:30.

think that our objectives and aims are much the same as Guernsey

:04:31.:04:34.

fishermen. We want that area to be controlled, to be policed, and we

:04:35.:04:39.

want real intelligent proper fisheries management so we all have

:04:40.:04:43.

a future in that area. The fishermen here in Jersey hope that by putting

:04:44.:04:48.

pressure on the politicians, they may soon be sailing into smoother

:04:49.:04:50.

waters. A hearing has been told midwives

:04:51.:04:55.

in Guernsey were providing "unsafe and inadequate standards of care"

:04:56.:04:57.

when a newborn baby died in 2014. Three staff on the Loveridge Ward

:04:58.:05:00.

at Princess Elizabeth Hospital are facing misconduct charges

:05:01.:05:02.

at a Nursing and Midwifery Council Today, the hearing was told senior

:05:03.:05:05.

nurse Lisa Granville investigated the baby's death and found no issues

:05:06.:05:10.

with its treatment. But later reviews revealed

:05:11.:05:14.

"inadequate" care and concerns that midwives were acting outside

:05:15.:05:18.

the scope of their practice. The three women accept some

:05:19.:05:21.

charges and deny others. The hearing is expected

:05:22.:05:25.

to last four weeks. A 31-year-old man has appeared

:05:26.:05:32.

in court in Jersey to face Appearing in the Magistrate's Court,

Pawel Dzielak, who was born in Poland, is accused of robbing

in the Channel Islands. Later in Spotlight with Justin

and Victoria: Batty about bats - meet the lady who's turned her home

:05:59.:06:00.

into a bat cave. The Jersey Reds' chairman

:06:01.:06:03.

is confident the rugby club will be able to buy back their St Peter

:06:04.:06:12.

ground within three years. Jersey recently sold

:06:13.:06:15.

their assets after running But now fundraising plans

:06:16.:06:16.

are underway, and last night more than 100 club members met to find

:06:17.:06:21.

out about them. After successive years

:06:22.:06:23.

of financial losses, the Reds took the bold step

:06:24.:06:31.

of selling the clubhouse A short-term help -

:06:32.:06:33.

for the time being, they're renting them,

:06:34.:06:36.

but now begins the work While the club hopes to bring

:06:37.:06:39.

in half of the money needed by selling a plot of land,

:06:40.:06:45.

the rest will need to be raised by supporters or sponsorship,

:06:46.:06:48.

including a big fundraising ball. We went through some dark days at

:06:49.:06:59.

the letter and of last year, but to really good things have come out of

:07:00.:07:03.

that, one is the fact we are back in control of our own destiny, and

:07:04.:07:09.

secondly the number of tremendous qualified individuals that have

:07:10.:07:12.

stepped forward and offered their help, both in financial terms, but

:07:13.:07:16.

more importantly, giving their time to drive efforts to raise back the

:07:17.:07:17.

money we need. The club has also been

:07:18.:07:19.

considering its structure. They want to stay fully professional

:07:20.:07:21.

and continue playing To do that in a less risky way

:07:22.:07:23.

could mean more loan We have got to do it in a way that

:07:24.:07:33.

we can afford it. We will be working with some premiership clubs to see

:07:34.:07:36.

how we can develop relationships with them to take loan players from

:07:37.:07:41.

them for an extended period of time, to supplement a core of

:07:42.:07:45.

professionals that we would put directly onto our books.

:07:46.:07:47.

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

:07:48.:07:50.

better facilities should attract bigger crowds, and therefore

:07:51.:07:52.

more cash to help get the Reds their home back.

:07:53.:07:58.

From plans to abolish public executions, to a man

:07:59.:08:00.

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

:08:01.:08:03.

made available for the first time by Jersey Heritage.

:08:04.:08:06.

They've been closed to public access for up to 100 years,

:08:07.:08:09.

but they're now able to shed light on some of the island's

:08:10.:08:12.

darkest periods of history, as Jessica Banham reports.

:08:13.:08:23.

June 1940, German planes moving to bomb St Peter Port and St Helier

:08:24.:08:31.

harbour. Nine people died that day in Jersey, but now, thanks to the

:08:32.:08:34.

island's archivists, their stories live on. Here we have a list of the

:08:35.:08:39.

people who died in the air raids that took place dust prior to

:08:40.:08:43.

occupation, and then the inquest that took place afterwards. More

:08:44.:08:47.

than 150 records have been opened to the public for the first time. They

:08:48.:08:52.

include notes from those inquests. These give the details of the planes

:08:53.:08:57.

coming over. We can see members of the family having to go and identify

:08:58.:09:01.

the victims. We know those who died at the scene and those who were

:09:02.:09:04.

taken to hospital. It just adds a bit more information to what we

:09:05.:09:09.

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

:09:10.:09:14.

years. This is a petition by Frederick John Smith. He was

:09:15.:09:18.

sentenced to a year in prison for bigamy, but hey he asked if he can

:09:19.:09:22.

join the Army instead. The request was granted and he was sent to the

:09:23.:09:27.

front. They are just a fascinating history of Jersey socially,

:09:28.:09:32.

politically, but also they tell the stories of the people who live tape,

:09:33.:09:36.

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

:09:37.:09:40.

to bring history to life for people. The records are now open for the

:09:41.:09:44.

public to view, ensuring that Jersey's history is preserved for

:09:45.:09:46.

all its future generations. Bee Tucker has the weather

:09:47.:09:50.

for us this evening. It is certainly going to get colder.

:09:51.:10:03.

I think we could get a few wintry flurries, but the bulk of what we

:10:04.:10:07.

will see tomorrow is rain. It is going to be a cold day. Crucially

:10:08.:10:13.

the wind will be noticeable at even 50 mph gusting at times. Quiet at

:10:14.:10:17.

the moment. We have a north westerly airflow. Largely dry through the

:10:18.:10:21.

evening, and the weather system pushes them from the West in the

:10:22.:10:26.

early hours of tomorrow. Most of the precipitation will be rain, but

:10:27.:10:30.

there will be much colder air coming from behind, so anything falling out

:10:31.:10:34.

of the sky on Friday could be wintry. We will see some sunshine on

:10:35.:10:38.

Friday, but also some hail or sleet mixed in as well, but it should not

:10:39.:10:43.

be anything that will accumulate too much. We have had some sunshine

:10:44.:10:46.

across the islands today, more cloud feeding an over the last few hours,

:10:47.:10:51.

and through tonight we have got one or two showers remaining. A brief

:10:52.:10:54.

dry spell before they could cloud and further outbreaks of rain push

:10:55.:10:58.

in from the West and these could tempt heavy at times towards dawn.

:10:59.:11:03.

It will not be a bit sickly cold night with temperatures down to

:11:04.:11:08.

seven or 8 degrees. Tomorrow, the rain on and off through the morning,

:11:09.:11:11.

but by lunchtime most of us will have heavy downpours and it will

:11:12.:11:15.

turn increasingly wet through the afternoon. Heavy downpours, strong

:11:16.:11:19.

and gusty winds, which could cost up to 50 mph in some places. It will

:11:20.:11:26.

feel cold, getting down to around nine or 10 degrees.

:11:27.:11:51.

It does turn milder and less windy as we head across the weekend.

:11:52.:11:57.

That's it for now. I am back at 8pm. We'll meet the man behind the music

:11:58.:12:05.

on this children's TV favourite. A former dairy which has been

:12:06.:12:14.

derelict for almost a decade is about to be transformed

:12:15.:12:17.

into homes, businesses and leisure space providing jobs

:12:18.:12:19.

and affordable homes. Turning an old creamery into a space

:12:20.:12:21.

for the community has been dubbed a project by the people

:12:22.:12:24.

for the people. The Dairy Crest site

:12:25.:12:28.

in Totnes closed in 2007,
