A reminder of the day's main story... The

Support and guidance to encourage Guernsey businesses

If they stay on the line, the call will be answered. It will be always

picked up later on. We have the number and we'll pick it up as soon

:00:27.:00:28.

as we can. And, a vote for football

:00:29.:00:31.

independence could bring hundreds of thousands

:00:32.:00:33.

pounds into Jersey. And we have got some very strong

:00:34.:00:45.

winds to come which will hit the island tomorrow in association with

:00:46.:00:48.

Storm Doris. Full details later in the programme.

:00:49.:00:54.

The man in charge of Jersey's ambulance service has told the BBC

:00:55.:00:57.

that he's concerned they're now receiving so many emergency

:00:58.:00:59.

calls it's taking longer to get to patients.

:01:00.:01:01.

There's been a 40% increase in the number of calls the service

:01:02.:01:04.

has attended in the past six years, and they admit there are times

:01:05.:01:08.

Ambulance service, what's the address of your emergency?

:01:09.:01:20.

Dial 999, and we all expect there to be someone

:01:21.:01:25.

But in Jersey, there's been a steady increase in the number of calls

:01:26.:01:32.

to the ambulance service, and at times, when there's several

:01:33.:01:35.

calls at once, they can't all be answered immediately.

:01:36.:01:38.

Staff say they are under pressure but are still offering

:01:39.:01:41.

If they stay on the line, the call will be answered.

:01:42.:01:47.

It will always be picked up later on.

:01:48.:01:50.

We will always have the number and we'll pick it up as soon as we can.

:01:51.:01:54.

What we do have is an urgent disconnect, so we know that

:01:55.:01:57.

if there's another call waiting, that's a priority, we can urgently

:01:58.:02:00.

disconnect from the first call, providing we have sufficient details

:02:01.:02:02.

Back in 2010, the ambulance service attended around 6,300 calls.

:02:03.:02:08.

By last year, that figure had risen to more than 8,700

:02:09.:02:15.

And the service admit the high volume of calls is having an impact

:02:16.:02:20.

Generally they manage to attend about two-thirds of all critical

:02:21.:02:24.

calls within eight minutes, but in the past year that figure has

:02:25.:02:27.

The Health Department believes part of the problem is people

:02:28.:02:33.

calling for an ambulance when they don't need too.

:02:34.:02:41.

The minor ones that could make their own way, it would make a great

:02:42.:02:46.

difference. It is like people going to hospital as did their GP because

:02:47.:02:51.

it is easier. Ashley, you could help someone else who is in dire need of

:02:52.:02:55.

urgent attention. An additional call dispatcher has

:02:56.:02:57.

also been recruited, and if the increase in the number

:02:58.:03:00.

of calls continues, the service say they are willing to hire more

:03:01.:03:03.

staff to meet demand. Jessica Banham, BBC

:03:04.:03:05.

Channel Islands News, Jersey. Businesses in Guernsey are to be

:03:06.:03:11.

given more support to encourage them GET, the Guernsey Employment Trust,

:03:12.:03:14.

is just finalising a new charter and good practice guide it'll be

:03:15.:03:18.

asking companies to sign up to later this year,

:03:19.:03:20.

as well as offering training. Penny Elderfield got

:03:21.:03:23.

an insight into what they do. He's pretty new to this

:03:24.:03:27.

job, but already making Happy to be here, and happy to have

:03:28.:03:31.

been given a chance to work. About ten years ago I got a pain

:03:32.:03:45.

into my leg went to the doctor, and within a few years they found out it

:03:46.:03:49.

is to do with the discs in my back. Most employers don't want to touch

:03:50.:03:53.

you when they hear there is something wrong with your back. It

:03:54.:03:58.

is almost like they look at you when you have said that as you are going

:03:59.:04:00.

to be a compensation claim. Ben's back problems

:04:01.:04:02.

don't stop him working. He just can't be on his feet

:04:03.:04:04.

for more than a few hours. Luckily his boss, Andy,

:04:05.:04:07.

was able to work with him and the Guernsey Employment Trust

:04:08.:04:10.

to find a way to make it work. It is probably natural to feel

:04:11.:04:20.

apprehensive and not be sure how it will work, but just to meet the

:04:21.:04:25.

person, get chatting to them, advise of any issues that might be more

:04:26.:04:30.

tricky for the individual, or areas that they might excel in.

:04:31.:04:32.

And GET wants to encourage more businesses to be open

:04:33.:04:34.

to the idea of taking on staff with a disability,

:04:35.:04:37.

with a new charter, good practice guide and training.

:04:38.:04:42.

Once we have given them the right direction and a bit of training and

:04:43.:04:47.

help, they can see that they are in a good position with good management

:04:48.:04:52.

skills, in helping people with disabilities into employment.

:04:53.:04:55.

Over the past year, the charity has helped around 70 people

:04:56.:04:57.

And, luckily for Ben, this is one that's just his cup of tea,

:04:58.:05:02.

A British parliament inquiry has been told the Channel Islands

:05:03.:05:08.

will be taken into account when the UK brokers its deal

:05:09.:05:11.

The Ministry of Justice is investigating the implications

:05:12.:05:14.

of Brexit for the Crown Dependencies.

:05:15.:05:16.

Giving evidence this afternoon, the Minister for Justice

:05:17.:05:18.

and his team gave reassurance Guernsey and Jersey

:05:19.:05:20.

I guess we just take every opportunity we can, so there were

:05:21.:05:34.

lots of different types of meetings happening, and we take the

:05:35.:05:39.

opportunity to raise around dependency in those meetings, and

:05:40.:05:43.

sometimes in the margins of those meetings we can have softer

:05:44.:05:46.

conversations and invite people to come and meet with us.

:05:47.:05:48.

People living in St Helier in Jersey could foot a new bill for waste

:05:49.:05:52.

disposal after the parish constable lost his appeal

:05:53.:05:54.

An old agreement that the parish didn't pay for waste became void

:05:55.:05:58.

when the disposal operation moved from Bellozanne to La Collette.

:05:59.:06:00.

The constable argued the agreement was for all time,

:06:01.:06:02.

but the Infrastructure department claimed it could be ended

:06:03.:06:04.

Judges agreed and dismissed the constable's appeal.

:06:05.:06:12.

Meanwhile, Jersey's treasury minister has been urged to get

:06:13.:06:15.

on with finding a way for Jersey's government to pay rates

:06:16.:06:17.

The States have agreed in principle that rates should be paid -

:06:18.:06:22.

now the parish constable wants the States to tell the minister

:06:23.:06:25.

to bring plans forward so payments can start next year.

:06:26.:06:36.

Work's now started on an 18 month project to repair

:06:37.:06:38.

Extensive work is needed both outside and in after

:06:39.:06:43.

The repairs have been on the cards for decades,

:06:44.:06:47.

but it's taken that long to work out how to fund the project,

:06:48.:06:51.

It will be one of the biggest scaffolding structures in Guernsey

:06:52.:07:03.

for a long time, and this is costing an absolute fortune. Once that is

:07:04.:07:07.

done, the entire building has got to be appointed inside and out. The

:07:08.:07:11.

tower and the spire will have to be filled with a grout to glue all the

:07:12.:07:15.

stones together, because basically all the mortar inside has been

:07:16.:07:17.

washed out over the years. Football clubs in Jersey could be

:07:18.:07:19.

hundreds of thousands of pounds better off if the island manages

:07:20.:07:21.

to join European UEFA officials rejected the Jersey

:07:22.:07:24.

FA's application last year. But Jersey won't take

:07:25.:07:27.

no for an answer. The Court of Arbitration for Sport

:07:28.:07:29.

will rule in June whether existing member nations should have a vote

:07:30.:07:32.

on the bid. Jersey football officials put in

:07:33.:07:48.

this bid to join Uefa a year ago, saying they want to bring

:07:49.:07:51.

international football here to Springfield Stadium. Uefa officials

:07:52.:07:55.

originally rejected that, saying the island is not an independent state,

:07:56.:07:59.

but Jersey challenge that, and that is what will go before the Court of

:08:00.:08:02.

Arbitration for Sport at the end of June. Phil Austin joins me now, how

:08:03.:08:07.

significant is this day? It is one we have been trying to get in place

:08:08.:08:11.

for six months or so, and we heard just last week that the court will

:08:12.:08:18.

go ahead on the 28th of June, so a big day for Jersey football. Will it

:08:19.:08:21.

mean if they are eventually accepted into Uefa? It would change the whole

:08:22.:08:26.

picture of Jersey football, giving a pathway for these young people right

:08:27.:08:30.

through into international football. Our league champions every year, and

:08:31.:08:35.

our runners-up, would have automatic entry to the qualifying rounds of

:08:36.:08:38.

the Champions League and Europa League. A massive financial boost to

:08:39.:08:44.

them, but also massive motivation. Our senior team, men and women, and

:08:45.:08:49.

our under 19 and under 20 ones would also have access to international

:08:50.:08:53.

tournaments, so a massive change to the way we run representative

:08:54.:08:56.

football, and massive motivation for club football as well. And you

:08:57.:09:01.

believe that existing members should decide? That is the crux of our

:09:02.:09:05.

appeal, that the Uefa executive have decided that our catered not have

:09:06.:09:09.

sufficient merit to go for a vote with members. Our lawyers believe

:09:10.:09:12.

they don't have the powers to do that. The crux of our appeal is that

:09:13.:09:19.

we want our application to go forward to members for a vote.

:09:20.:09:24.

That Court of Arbitration for Sport at the end of June on the 28th.

:09:25.:09:27.

Rugby now, and the Jersey Reds club captain Pierce Phillips is leaving

:09:28.:09:30.

The 24-year-old lock is joining current Premiership side

:09:31.:09:34.

Worcester Warriors in the summer, after three seasons in the island -

:09:35.:09:37.

He's the second player in as many days to announce he's leaving

:09:38.:09:41.

Finally, some good news for air travellers as the fog

:09:42.:09:47.

Whipping up those winds is Storm Doris.

:09:48.:09:50.

How will this affect us here in the islands?

:09:51.:09:52.

What a great picture of Jersey cows. I know, I saw this one and really

:09:53.:10:05.

loved it. This was this morning when we did have some fog, but like you

:10:06.:10:09.

said, the winds picked up today and we have seen that list in places.

:10:10.:10:15.

Tomorrow, a wet start, some sunshine later, but it is the strength of the

:10:16.:10:20.

wind which will be most noticeable. Here is Doris. They will have

:10:21.:10:23.

cleared east by the middle of the day, so the heaviest rain will be

:10:24.:10:27.

across the islands in the morning. The winds will be strong, up to 70

:10:28.:10:31.

mph, particularly into the afternoon. It does quieten down for

:10:32.:10:36.

Friday, light winds, largely dry, a little bit cooler but plenty of

:10:37.:10:40.

sunshine. Fairly brisk westerly winds at the moment, and still a lot

:10:41.:10:44.

of cloud which is giving some light rain and drizzle. No cloud in

:10:45.:10:47.

places, but those westerly winds are letting the cloud not get too low,

:10:48.:10:52.

so not quite the visibility problems of last night. Very mild once again,

:10:53.:10:55.

temperatures down to eight or 9 degrees. Quite quickly, the rainbow

:10:56.:11:02.

push into tomorrow, a couple of hours of fairly heavy rain, and then

:11:03.:11:06.

some sunshine. Don't be full by those temperatures and the sunshine,

:11:07.:11:11.

those wins will be strong, gale force quite widely, up to 60 mph. It

:11:12.:11:17.

could even see one or two isolated busts of 70, so don't be surprised

:11:18.:11:21.

if it is very windy tomorrow. The Times of high water: I would not

:11:22.:11:31.

advise going out to the coast tomorrow, with some strong winds

:11:32.:11:36.

kicking up the surf. Further south slightly quieter. This is reflected

:11:37.:11:43.

in our coastal waters forecast. The rainbow click quite quickly -- the

:11:44.:11:53.

rain will clear quite quickly. It does turn quieter on Friday, light

:11:54.:11:58.

winds, plenty of sunshine. A bit of a dip in temperatures, but it does

:11:59.:12:02.

turn milder as we had through the weekend.

:12:03.:12:04.

That's it from us. Goodbye. And the toy train which got stuck

:12:05.:12:11.

in the tunnel of this dog's throat - A brand new ?15 million intensive

:12:12.:12:18.

care unit to treat patients who are critically ill has been

:12:19.:12:25.

officially opened at The project comes as the trust

:12:26.:12:28.

is also looking to close 32 beds in the hospital,

:12:29.:12:34.

but it says this is all part of its plans to provide the best

:12:35.:12:36.

care to patients who need it most. Tucked away in the corner

:12:37.:12:39.

of the brand-new intensive care unit, the last of 100 or so staff

breathing a bit there, Gary. In shiny new surroundings,

:12:52.:12:58.

with state-of-the-art equipment, A rare good news

:12:59.:13:01.

story about the NHS. There are 14 bays in

:13:02.:13:11.

the new intensive care unit and the first thing you notice

:13:12.:13:13.

is how much lighter and brighter they are, with daylight lighting

:13:14.:13:16.

and so much more space for staff As you can see, it's very clean,

:13:17.:13:19.

it's very bright, we have got top of the range equipment

:13:20.:13:26.

and there is space for them to get on with their job,

:13:27.:13:28.

because you feel very uncomfortable when you're doing things

:13:29.:13:33.

for a patient and you are having to kind of trip over their wife,

:13:34.:13:36.

their mum, saying I'm sorry and you don't want relatives to feel

:13:37.:13:39.

like they are in the way. The hospital's League of friends

:13:40.:13:42.

raise an incredible ?1.6 million The hospital's League of friends

:13:43.:13:44.

raised an incredible ?1.6 million which has helped to pay for much

of the top of the range kit and two I'm very proud, actually to be

:13:50.:13:53.

standing here and saying that The trust has effectively

:13:54.:13:57.

borrowed the money to pay for the new facilities at a time

:13:58.:14:00.

when it is also looking to cut costs by closing beds

:14:01.:14:03.

elsewhere in the hospital. In a sense, this is all part

:14:04.:14:05.

of the plan that we described, which is, where possible,

:14:06.:14:11.

we move people's care into the community and provide

:14:12.:14:13.

additional services there. For those people who need

:14:14.:14:21.

to be at the hospital, and there will be fewer of those

:14:22.:14:24.

in the future, we need to provide the highest level of care possible

:14:25.:14:27.

and this is at the very extreme end of that, in the sense

:14:28.:14:31.

that it has the sickest The makeover also includes

to patients in June. Yeovil District Hospital has created

a private company to carry out It says the new venture,

:14:48.:14:50.

which is part owned by an American company, will reduce waiting lists

:14:51.:14:56.

and cut the number of cancelled operations but the Royal College

:14:57.:15:00.

of Nursing says it's members aren't happy at being transferred

:15:01.:15:02.

from the NHS. Here's our Health

:15:03.:15:05.

correspondent Jenny Walrond. There's a big operation in progress

:15:06.:15:09.

at Yeovil District Hospital. It's starting with a new

:15:10.:15:14.

to do it at all. The NHS is the best place to have

:16:01.:16:03.

care and the fact that YDH chooses to transfer their care

:16:04.:16:08.

into the private sector isn't necessarily going to be better

:16:09.:16:11.

for patients and I'm absolutely sure The hospital trust says

:16:12.:16:14.

the new theatres and the new company will allow them to keep up

:16:15.:16:18.

with rising demands, use the latest surgical procedures

:16:19.:16:21.

and prevent operations being cancelled when there's

:16:22.:16:26.

pressure on the main hospital. In the past, the department

hasn't taken over as In the past, the department

:16:32.:16:34.

has been taken over as an emergency temporary ward,

:16:35.:16:37.

but the Royal College of Nursing's legal team has questioned

:16:38.:16:39.

whether the hospital has complied with rules on competition

:16:40.:16:43.

and procurement and whether it has the authority to create

:16:44.:16:45.

the new company. Yeovil District Hospital insists

:16:46.:16:47.

that it does and says the establishment of Daycase UK,

:16:48.:16:50.

including the procurement process, has been conducted in line

:16:51.:16:55.

with its statutory responsibilities and in the full knowledge

:16:56.:16:59.

of NHS regulators. Yeovil District Hospital says

:17:00.:17:04.

the current staff working in day surgery are at the heart

:17:05.:17:07.

of its plans and many are enthusiastic about these

:17:08.:17:10.

changes, but those who do transfer across to the new company

:17:11.:17:13.

will continue to receive many of the same terms

:17:14.:17:16.

and conditions Now a brief look at some

:17:17.:17:19.

of the other news tonight. The investigation into allegations

:17:20.:17:27.

of financial irregularities against Devon and Cornwall's Police

:17:28.:17:30.

and Crime Commissioner Alison Hernandez is alleged to have

:17:31.:17:33.

failed to properly declare election expenses whilst a Conservative

:17:34.:17:38.

election agent in Torbay in 2015. Archaeologists working on the site

:17:39.:17:43.

of The Royal Clarence Hotel have discovered a rare medieval

:17:44.:17:47.

decoration of a peacock The hotel was gutted

by fire last October. Weymouth Beach has been

:17:51.:17:55.

named the best in the UK. The three-mile long stretch of sand

:17:56.:17:59.

was also ranked number nine across the whole of Europe,

:18:00.:18:02.

in reviews posted on the Some say that the ability

:18:03.:18:04.

to play Pool is the sign Some say that the ability

:18:05.:18:13.

to play pool is the sign of a misspent youth,

:18:14.:18:15.

but two Devon men are hoping to prove hanging out in pubs can be

:18:16.:18:18.

a virtue as they attempt to break the Guinness World Record

:18:19.:18:21.

for continuously playing pool. They're raising funds in support

:18:22.:18:23.

of Rowcroft Hospice in Torquay. They started at noon today and hope

:18:24.:18:26.

to break the record on Sunday. Our reporter Johnny Rutherford

:18:27.:18:30.

is with them now. Right on cue!

:18:31.:18:44.

Did someone say cue? I'm not very good ideas. Luckily, it is not me

:18:45.:18:49.

taking the challenge, it is a macro guys here at the pub and they have

:18:50.:18:54.

got to go for 100 hours and more to be at the world record, which was

:18:55.:19:00.

actually set in America. If you look on this screen here that they have

:19:01.:19:05.

constantly running, it says three days, 21 hours, in 11 minutes and 46

:19:06.:19:10.

seconds. So that is quite some way to go. Let's go across and talk to

:19:11.:19:14.

Darren. Tell me what you're doing. We are raising money for Rowcrofts

:19:15.:19:20.

Hospice, we are up to ?5,000 and counting, we are looking to do over

:19:21.:19:25.

100 hours continuous play, as I said, in aid of Rowcroft. 100 hours

:19:26.:19:34.

nonstop, do you get a break? We are allowed five minutes per hour, so we

:19:35.:19:37.

are going to bank those five minutes in order to have some kind of sleep

:19:38.:19:42.

and whatnot in the next day or two. And who are you playing against?

:19:43.:19:48.

Graham, the landlord. Who is the best player of the two? Probably me.

:19:49.:19:55.

Sorry about that. That's not what you told me earlier! Coming across

:19:56.:19:59.

to you, you are the landlord and why did you come up with this and why?

:20:00.:20:04.

It was just a chat between myself and Darren, it was Darren's idea and

:20:05.:20:09.

we both thought it was possible. You know, it is a great thing to do for

:20:10.:20:13.

Rowcroft, we wanted to do it for a local charity and it all added up

:20:14.:20:17.

and we have had such great support, as you can see this evening, and it

:20:18.:20:21.

has been constant, trying to do it since last October. It is very

:20:22.:20:27.

official, you have cameras appear showing you are live and everything.

:20:28.:20:31.

If you are going to do it, do it properly! What is worrying is the

:20:32.:20:36.

number of times you are literally bending over, have you got a misuse

:20:37.:20:43.

on stand-by? Yes, my daughter. For real? For real, she is qualified.

:20:44.:20:50.

And someone is witnessing this at all times? We have to have

:20:51.:20:55.

professionals in place because it is a case that the adjudication has to

:20:56.:20:59.

be covered, the video footage has to tie up with the adjudicators and

:21:00.:21:02.

what they say, that is really how it works. We will go across to your

:21:03.:21:09.

wife, the landlady. Carroll, tell me, this is all for a particular

:21:10.:21:14.

reason. Tell me what this is? Basically to raise money for

:21:15.:21:18.

Rowcroft Hospice, a hospice in Torquay that is very dear to locals'

:21:19.:21:23.

hearts and it is very underfunded and threatened with closure. They

:21:24.:21:29.

helped over 200,000 people per year with light limiting illnesses, so it

:21:30.:21:32.

is very important that we keep this Hospice going and get some money in

:21:33.:21:37.

the bank for them. Brilliant. Well, they'll still playing, still a long

:21:38.:21:41.

way to go. Just setting up here ready for the next game.

:21:42.:21:44.

Good luck, guys. Yes, brilliant cause, let's hope they go well with

:21:45.:21:47.

it. I was a bit worried that they had

stopped playing very minute there! Now you've heard of dog training

:21:49.:21:52.

treats, but how about this - a dog is recovering at home

:21:53.:21:55.

in Torpoint after somehow eating a train that

:21:56.:21:57.

certainly wasn't a treat. The toy which became a snack only

:21:58.:21:59.

came to light when Cyril He was x-rayed by vets in Plymouth,

and happily, the nine-year-old has Why a dog should choose to eat a toy

:22:08.:22:13.

didn't eat that too. He loves to eat and he will eat

absolutely anything. He is always hungry,

:22:25.:22:29.

but we don't allow it but he would constantly eat

:22:30.:22:39.

if he could. Clearly, Cyril has a good appetite,

:22:40.:22:40.

but there were signals something was wrong and when he fell ill,

:22:41.:22:45.

the Mellors took him to the vet. We checked him over,

:22:46.:22:51.

realised he was unwell, he had stomach pain,

:22:52.:22:56.

so we gave him an anaesthetic and x-rayed him and on the x-ray,

:22:57.:23:02.

we could clearly see of white object We were a bit perplexed

:23:03.:23:05.

as to what it was, we thought it might be a Lego brick or a child's

:23:06.:23:10.

toy or something like that and in fact, it turned out

:23:11.:23:13.

to be a railway carriage. You can just see the wheels

on the top of it here. The discovery has brought

a whole new meaning After his operation,

cloud over us but the winds have started to pick up ahead of Doris.

Tomorrow, you consider strengths of the winds, heavy rain will clear

sunshine and a much quieter day on Friday. Try and bright, a lot of

sunshine with winds, but feeling cool. Saturday, the wind pick-up

again, not in association with Doris, but a slightly breezy day. A

:24:57.:25:00.

lot of cloud across the South west today, a few holes given the

:25:01.:25:04.

strength of those winds, but we have a lot of low cloud still out there

:25:24.:25:27.

can see 50-60 mph gusts, particular across the coast of Devon and

Cornwall and over higher ground. So don't be fooled, we see sunshine and

:25:32.:25:35.

mild temperatures, offset by the strength of the winds, highs of nine

:26:03.:26:07.

the winds will come around to a north-westerly direction towards the

:26:08.:26:11.

tail end of the day and they will increase. Some rain first thing but

:26:12.:26:14.

the bulk of the day should be dry with some sunshine and visibility

:26:15.:26:18.

will be good. So we have been talking about Doris all week and

:26:19.:26:21.

that will hit as tomorrow. The winds are already starting to pick up. We

:26:22.:26:24.

will see heavy rain during the morning between six and eight, the

north-west, Gale force at times and they will fairly strong throughout

Friday a much quieter day and we will see the winds ease, cooler and

:26:44.:26:46.

temperatures dropping but more in the way our sunshine. The winds pick

up as we head towards the weekend, nothing to out of the ordinary and

while we were see a lot of cloud, you can see temperatures recovering
