Good evening I'm Charlie McArdle, welcome to BBC Channel Islands.

:00:00.:00:00.

These are Tuesday's headlines: Public pressure

:00:00.:00:08.

following innovation fund fiasco - A tearful Senator Ozouf offers to

:00:09.:00:11.

ask you to be glad for now we are rid of a minister who has been such

:00:12.:00:26.

a liability to this island. ?3 million shortfall for Guernsey's

:00:27.:00:28.

new waste management facility. And there's been an increase

:00:29.:00:30.

in the number of people with mental health issues being held

:00:31.:00:33.

in police cells. I worked fine but cold weather

:00:34.:00:45.

continues, no sign of any arena for the next few days. All the details

:00:46.:00:50.

later in the programme. -- no sign of any rain.

:00:51.:00:52.

A tearful Senator Philip Ozouf offered to resign from his role

:00:53.:00:55.

as assistant Chief Minister today over losses to the Innovation Fund.

:00:56.:00:58.

It was set up to support new business ideas but potentially

:00:59.:01:04.

lost one point ?4 million of public money.

:01:05.:01:14.

Although Senator Ozouf didn't set up the scheme,

:01:15.:01:17.

he has been legally responsible for it for the last year.

:01:18.:01:20.

There were calls outside the States meeting today for him to see out

:01:21.:01:23.

Over a hundred protesters gathered in Royal Square this afternoon

:01:24.:01:29.

to show they'd no confidence in Senator Philip Ozouf.

:01:30.:01:32.

Their anger was also directed at the Chief Minister who they've

:01:33.:01:35.

The public perception is that the Chief Minister is very

:01:36.:01:41.

So it may be that the Innovation Fund is small money compared to some

:01:42.:01:46.

of the other problems that they may not know about.

:01:47.:01:48.

And the anger wasn't just outside, with policians also

:01:49.:01:50.

We have a States Chamber that is completely

:01:51.:01:54.

They don't know how the people in this square feel because these

:01:55.:01:59.

are ordinary islandners who represent everybody

:02:00.:02:02.

on the island in terms of their views, their values

:02:03.:02:06.

and what they want to see from government.

:02:07.:02:08.

The people in that States assembly simply don't understand how

:02:09.:02:10.

But the man at the centre of this protest wouldn't face the public

:02:11.:02:14.

and offered to resign behind closed doors.

:02:15.:02:16.

He says he believes he's done the right thing

:02:17.:02:18.

I shall be writing to the Chief Minister offering to step aside.

:02:19.:02:36.

The Chief Minister was also avoiding questions.

:02:37.:02:39.

I shall be making a statement to the assembly.

:02:40.:02:43.

had enough of Senator Ozouf, the Chief Minister says there

:02:44.:02:47.

is a role for governments to get involved in promoting innovation.

:02:48.:02:59.

He went on to say that is a role for Government to get involved in

:03:00.:03:05.

promoting innovation but the state must learn from mistakes made in

:03:06.:03:07.

handling the innovation plan. Guernsey shouldn't become a slave

:03:08.:03:10.

to it's recycling targets That's the stark message form

:03:11.:03:12.

Deputy Peter Roffey ahead of a debate aimed at freeing up

:03:13.:03:17.

almost ?3 million to meet a shortfall in funds

:03:18.:03:20.

for the new waste management Guernsey has certainly embraced

:03:21.:03:24.

the recycling message. But there's still more to be

:03:25.:03:35.

done if targets of 70% That's the ultimate aim,

:03:36.:03:37.

and a government debate next week could launch the island

:03:38.:03:43.

into a new era of waste management. But costs have gone up

:03:44.:03:47.

since the strategy was originally and now the States are being asked

:03:48.:03:53.

to free up the extra funds needed. I think that the figures originally

:03:54.:03:57.

put forward to persuade the States to go down this route

:03:58.:04:00.

were wildly inaccurate. It's almost irrelevant

:04:01.:04:02.

now, isn't it? We've got a tip that will be filled

:04:03.:04:03.

some time next year, there is no other plan B

:04:04.:04:06.

on the table, we've got to export, we've got to say, "Sweden,

:04:07.:04:09.

we didn't want to burn our waste, "so will you burn it

:04:10.:04:12.

for us instead'. I'm going to vote for that

:04:13.:04:14.

with a very heavy heart, but that doesn't mean I'm

:04:15.:04:17.

going to accept all of Kerbside collections are set

:04:18.:04:20.

to cost ?2 million a year, and Deputy Roffey feels the island

:04:21.:04:26.

shouldn't simply plough on with recycling targets

:04:27.:04:29.

regardless of cost. But, time for talking

:04:30.:04:32.

is running out. What we need clearly

:04:33.:04:34.

is a decision. We've done a certain thing

:04:35.:04:36.

for a very long time. We've done something that's cheap,

:04:37.:04:42.

it's dirty, environmentally it's unfriendly and we need to stop doing

:04:43.:04:44.

it, so States members need to coalesce solidly around a vote

:04:45.:04:47.

in favour of waste export. Each time the sun sets

:04:48.:04:53.

on Mont Cuet, the island moves Any more delays, however well

:04:54.:04:56.

intended, could cost time Roisin Gauson, BBC Channel

:04:57.:05:00.

Islands News, Guernsey. There's been an increase

:05:01.:05:07.

in the number of people with mental health issues being held

:05:08.:05:11.

in cells at Jersey police station. Last year 72 people were detained -

:05:12.:05:13.

that's up from 67 the year before. It comes as a report

:05:14.:05:18.

by the Jersey Police authority that says cells should not be

:05:19.:05:20.

considered a place of safety. We are going to illegally who is

:05:21.:05:23.

expressing suicidal ideas. A mental health nurse accompanies

:05:24.:05:44.

a police officer on a call-out. Sussex police are one of several

:05:45.:05:46.

forces who have trialled this It led to a big drop in the number

:05:47.:05:49.

of people with mental health issues Mental health is very much an area

:05:50.:06:06.

where there are lots of different practices being tested around the

:06:07.:06:10.

British Isles and we are looking at Best practice and aiming to provide

:06:11.:06:13.

the best possible service we can to our community. Last year officers

:06:14.:06:21.

were called out to 105 calls relating to mental health issues and

:06:22.:06:23.

there are concerns about the pressure it is placing on resources.

:06:24.:06:29.

In a report released by the police authority they see the level of

:06:30.:06:31.

demand on police from people suffering from mental health issues

:06:32.:06:36.

continues to be a source of concern and while they recognise the

:06:37.:06:41.

importance of the role officers they believe police cells should not be

:06:42.:06:46.

considered a place of safety. They have assured us when the new

:06:47.:06:50.

hospital is built there will be a proper suites are available for

:06:51.:06:55.

mental health conditions and of course the provision will be much

:06:56.:06:58.

improved when the police move to the new police headquarters in March

:06:59.:07:02.

this year. With the new hospital at least six years away a short-term

:07:03.:07:07.

solution not involving police cells still needs to be found.

:07:08.:07:11.

Guernsey's Health and Social Care Committee is looking

:07:12.:07:15.

to "focus on the future, not the past" after it released

:07:16.:07:18.

the findings of the final visit by the

:07:19.:07:20.

It concluded there have been significant improvements

:07:21.:07:24.

in organisational culture and better leadership.

:07:25.:07:28.

It follows a damning report two years ago

:07:29.:07:31.

The President of the Health and Social Care Committee is keen

:07:32.:07:37.

There has been a lot of investment put in the past two years, money

:07:38.:07:49.

does not mean everything behind that has been a sea change in how

:07:50.:07:55.

services are provided and would say this is safe environment for patents

:07:56.:07:59.

to have their babies. And I'm really proud of what the staff of time to

:08:00.:08:06.

get us to place we are today. -- what the staff have done.

:08:07.:08:08.

The Channel Islands could have a new airline.

:08:09.:08:10.

It's called Waves and will be leasing a fleet of these

:08:11.:08:12.

It's hoping to be in operation this summer.

:08:13.:08:15.

The company will run up to four services an hour between the islands

:08:16.:08:18.

at a cost of between ?45 and ?75 for a single leg.

:08:19.:08:21.

Its boss says he hopes it'll be an "alternative" rather

:08:22.:08:24.

than a "competitor" to other airlines.

:08:25.:08:30.

We are completely driven by our technology backbone and that

:08:31.:08:39.

technology enables islanders to book and fly in the most convenient and

:08:40.:08:44.

easy and cost efficient way possible. It is an alternative to

:08:45.:08:48.

the existing airlines which are currently offering services.

:08:49.:08:52.

Guernsey's tennis star Heather Watson has made it

:08:53.:08:54.

through to the second round of the Australian Open.

:08:55.:08:56.

Watson didn't drop a game in the third set, beating

:08:57.:08:58.

Australian and eighteenth seed Sam Stosur

:08:59.:09:00.

She's next in action in a few hours' time in the doubles.

:09:01.:09:06.

Heather is one of several British players who have

:09:07.:09:08.

And Heather says it really spurs her on.

:09:09.:09:13.

For me, it really motivates me when I see it but on day one and then I

:09:14.:09:22.

followed Jerry's match on that court. I think it is great and I use

:09:23.:09:29.

it to push myself along. And try and keep up with them all now. -- when I

:09:30.:09:32.

followed Joe's match. The temperature has dropped

:09:33.:09:34.

but a least we can be thankful it's dry for the time being,

:09:35.:09:36.

or am I speaking too soon, It is certainly a bright story,

:09:37.:09:48.

perhaps too drive for those in the fields and the gardens -- to drive.

:09:49.:09:54.

A lot of cold weather coming in from the east. Cold and ride tomorrow and

:09:55.:09:59.

some overnight frost but also sunshine. Why is it dry and cold?

:10:00.:10:05.

Because of this area of pressure, high pressure. It moves around a bit

:10:06.:10:13.

over the next 24 hours, this -- tracking steadily westwards. We are

:10:14.:10:16.

clear of that cloud in the south-west of England. By the middle

:10:17.:10:22.

of the day on Thursday the same area of high pressure is still giving us

:10:23.:10:26.

easterly winds. Those winds coming from quite a cold correction, where

:10:27.:10:35.

temperatures are startling -- called direction, such as France. We will

:10:36.:10:40.

see a frost overnight, inland temperatures around zero. Disturbing

:10:41.:10:48.

winds which means the raw feeling day, -- easterly winds. It is a

:10:49.:10:54.

called Mike datamodel, a bit more of a breeze and quite a cold day. -- it

:10:55.:11:05.

will be called Mike datamodel. Here are the times of high water. The

:11:06.:11:14.

coastal waters forecast has the winds used by north-easterly four,

:11:15.:11:22.

occasionally five. This is the outward. More cloud into the weekend

:11:23.:11:28.

but the temperatures do not get above six Celsius. A bit more cloud

:11:29.:11:34.

on Thursday and Friday, Saturday generally rather cloudy and quite

:11:35.:11:38.

cold. If you're heading to France and across into Belgium temperatures

:11:39.:11:47.

just a few degrees above freezing. Our top story, tearful senator

:11:48.:11:54.

resigned from the States to over potential losses of ?1.4 million

:11:55.:11:59.

from innovation fund. Join us again and 30 PM. Why for now.

:12:00.:12:06.

especially when your child is learning difficulties. -- when your

:12:07.:12:06.

child has learning difficulties. A Devon man is taking his campaign

:12:07.:12:16.

about living with dementia Norman McNamara has made the film,

:12:17.:12:19.

Norrms, to raise awareness and show how people with dementia can

:12:20.:12:23.

still live happy lives. It will be shown at

:12:24.:12:26.

the Sundance Festival in Utah. Diagnosed with dementia in his 50s,

:12:27.:12:28.

Norma McNamara was horrified at how little people knew

:12:29.:12:37.

about the condition. He started the Purple Angel

:12:38.:12:38.

campaign and even canvassed It started with a Memory Cafe

:12:39.:12:41.

and local shops signing up Now, there are ambassadors

:12:42.:12:54.

worldwide in more than There are films out there

:12:55.:12:57.

and to be honest, they are Because to be honest,

:12:58.:13:03.

it always shows the bad side, and of course there is a bad

:13:04.:13:07.

side to dementia, there But we wanted to show the positive

:13:08.:13:10.

side and how there is life And also how people can actually

:13:11.:13:14.

live a good life after Norman's partner Elaine has

:13:15.:13:18.

seen good times as well She's seen how making this

:13:19.:13:22.

film has helped him. It helps because it

:13:23.:13:25.

keeps his brain active. It has got something for him to do

:13:26.:13:27.

and you're not thinking about what's wrong with you, but

:13:28.:13:30.

about other people. And when we set off with the Torbay

:13:31.:13:34.

Dementia Action Alliance, we have the Memory Cafe,

:13:35.:13:40.

but the idea was if we can dementia and their carer,

:13:41.:13:42.

that was job done. Norrms was filmed both

:13:43.:13:46.

here and in the USA. I was probably one of the first

:13:47.:13:52.

Dementia Angels, Purple Angel The second or third,

:13:53.:13:55.

maybe the first, I don't know. I interviewed Norman,

:13:56.:14:00.

I was running an online talk show called The Dementia Project

:14:01.:14:06.

and I had Norman on as a guest. But it all came together

:14:07.:14:12.

and the Purple Angel started and it's amazing

:14:13.:14:18.

what the man has done. As part of the campaign,

:14:19.:14:21.

many hospitals in the US now give patients a Purple Angel wristband,

:14:22.:14:25.

so when they go missing, people know This is not about labelling

:14:26.:14:28.

people or showing people up or putting them

:14:29.:14:31.

in a box, but helping them. We love the NHS, especially

:14:32.:14:33.

in Torbay and we will carry on knocking at that door

:14:34.:14:36.

and they'll say yes, hopefully. Although not officially

:14:37.:14:39.

sanctioned by some dementia bodies, the Purple Angel

:14:40.:14:41.

campaign is huge, with thousands of Norman hopes the film

:14:42.:14:44.

will spread Now swimming outdoors probably isn't

:14:45.:14:47.

high on your agenda in January, but for some people,

:14:48.:15:00.

including our next guest, Pauline Barker is an ice

:15:01.:15:02.

swimmer and later this week is leading a team out to Poland

:15:03.:15:05.

for a rather chilly competition. Welcome to Spotlight. Why do you

:15:06.:15:21.

want to swim in icy cold water? Ones used to date, it is quite pleasant.

:15:22.:15:27.

Getting in is the hard part, but the camaraderie of the event and once

:15:28.:15:30.

you're there, you end up with a smile on your face. We have photos

:15:31.:15:35.

from the event last year in Poland, with the temperature at minus 17.

:15:36.:15:39.

Tell us a bit about the competition are what you have to do in these

:15:40.:15:45.

conditions? It was about minus 17. This year it will be a little bit

:15:46.:15:52.

warmer, minus nine. , Easier than! The water will be about two degrees.

:15:53.:15:58.

For the main event, it is a one kilometres event, the longest swim

:15:59.:16:02.

but we do. There are also shorter events of 100 metres and 250 metres

:16:03.:16:07.

for those who don't want to go the full kilometre. You did well last

:16:08.:16:13.

year, didn't you? Yes, I won the 500 metre event. That took about 12

:16:14.:16:21.

minutes. There's a serious side though, isn't there? We all know the

:16:22.:16:24.

shock bodies can go into an exposed to cold water and people even die

:16:25.:16:29.

from hypothermia. So, how do you adapt to the bitterly cold

:16:30.:16:34.

temperatures? How do you prepare? Folk cold water swimmers, we to

:16:35.:16:39.

acclimatise. When we first start-up we tell people to state in the water

:16:40.:16:44.

for one minute for every degree of temperature. 10 degrees for ten

:16:45.:16:48.

minutes and so on. You can stay in for longer and longer as you get

:16:49.:16:52.

used to it. The trick is not just the swimming, but how you recover

:16:53.:16:56.

afterwards. We should point to anyone wearing a wet suit, are you?

:16:57.:17:04.

Just a normal swimming costume. No wet suits, no hats and gloves, just

:17:05.:17:09.

a swimming costume. This is very different to your day job, isn't it?

:17:10.:17:19.

Yes, I work in a bank. So my spare time IIS swimmer. I've always been a

:17:20.:17:27.

swimmer and I swim -- swum the channel and I had to learn how to

:17:28.:17:32.

acclimatise to the cold vendor. It is becoming quite popular is wild

:17:33.:17:37.

swimming, in the south-west. Is it good place to train? The best place

:17:38.:17:42.

to train for this sort of thing. There were lots of wild swimmers in

:17:43.:17:48.

and Cornwall. I run a group. It is a social group and there are 7000

:17:49.:17:52.

people in that group watching it, swimming with others and it happens

:17:53.:17:58.

all over Devon and Cornwall. People should take an organised group,

:17:59.:18:03.

shouldn't they? Yes, it's always safer to swimming company. There is

:18:04.:18:09.

guidance on the website. -- to swim in the company. Swimmer with

:18:10.:18:16.

friends, it is not just compatible, but safer. Good look in Poland.

:18:17.:18:23.

Rather you dummy! -- a rather you than me!

:18:24.:18:24.

The Princess Royal donned her wellies during

:18:25.:18:26.

Princess Anne met workers and users of two charities and opened

:18:27.:18:30.

Spotlight's Andrea Ormsby has spent the day

:18:31.:18:32.

Arriving by helicopter with a big wave from the youngsters touring

:18:33.:18:45.

A big day for them and for this pig, Licquorice.

:18:46.:18:52.

A good old brush from the children to

:18:53.:18:57.

Wellies are the order of the day here.

:18:58.:19:07.

What was most exciting, meeting Licquorice the pig or Princess Anne?

:19:08.:19:13.

It's the most wonderful way to celebrate Farms For

:19:14.:19:21.

She's been a long-term supporter and it is always great to have

:19:22.:19:27.

support to help us raise our profile and this is really nice to have her

:19:28.:19:31.

here today, celebrating the end of our 40th anniversary year.

:19:32.:19:38.

The Princess was here this morning to help

:19:39.:19:42.

celebrate 60 years of the Highbury Trust which helps those with

:19:43.:19:45.

I would like to say thank you and I think she's

:19:46.:19:54.

It means so much to the Highbury Trust.

:19:55.:20:04.

It is an incredible organisation that encourages

:20:05.:20:06.

It highlights who they are and helps people take notice.

:20:07.:20:11.

Also on the royal schedule today, an official opening

:20:12.:20:21.

of the new 50-metre Olympic Legacy pool at

:20:22.:20:24.

It was great to meet a member of

:20:25.:20:30.

The combination of 15-odd years of the vision to bring the

:20:31.:20:41.

50-metre pool for the community to benefit from and for swimming across

:20:42.:20:44.

A city is about to try and hold its nerve as Plymouth Argyle face

:20:45.:20:58.

Premier League giants Liverpool once more in the FA Cup.

:20:59.:21:00.

Manager Derek Adams today said he's not changing his tactics as the top

:21:01.:21:03.

flight club comes to Home Park for the third round replay.

:21:04.:21:06.

Ahead of the big match tomorrow, our Sports Reporter Andy Birkett has met

:21:07.:21:09.

up with a Pilgrims legend to get his take on it all.

:21:10.:21:25.

Eye taxi of a home part? Do you know where you're going? Not from on this

:21:26.:21:34.

way? No, from Liverpool. Scouser? Yes. Bubble man? Yes, read. I'm not

:21:35.:21:41.

a balloon. One just read, you are agreed. Where does your loyalty lie

:21:42.:21:51.

for this game? I was born and bred in Liverpool, but I have lived in

:21:52.:21:54.

Plymouth a long time and I will sit on the fence. You are a cult hero

:21:55.:22:00.

here at home Park. What was it about this place the majors so successful

:22:01.:22:07.

do you think? After the initial few games, the fans took to me and like

:22:08.:22:15.

most strikers that can score goals, you become a bit of a cult hero and

:22:16.:22:23.

you can go to Liverpool, they've all got goal-scorers, but every year, I
