Specialist help for young victims of abuse.

:00:18.:00:20.

Jersey invests in a creative way to help youngsters overcome

:00:21.:00:22.

The people who have gone through the service has said they feel that they

:00:23.:00:27.

can sleep better, that they are less anxious, less angry. They are not

:00:28.:00:31.

displaying negative behaviours. They are able to come to terms with what

:00:32.:00:36.

has happened to them. with a big increase of high earning

in Jersey will get access to specialist therapy,

:00:53.:00:56.

under a new scheme by Health It's the first time this service

:00:57.:00:59.

will be delivered in the island, where nearly 200 cases of child sex

:01:00.:01:07.

abuse have been reported The States are providing

:01:08.:01:09.

?50,000 a year to fund a social worker specially trained

to help victims. but these activities of painting,

story-telling and creative play helping young victims

of sexual abuse. They're run in the UK by the charity

:01:32.:01:36.

the NSPCC, and now they're

:01:37.:01:38.

being introduced in Jersey. The one-to-one creative sessions

:01:39.:01:41.

are to help victims come to terms They may feel anxious, they may

:01:42.:01:43.

display negative behaviours, they may also hold a lot of anger,

:01:44.:01:49.

but children and young people who go through the Letting The Future In

:01:50.:01:52.

courses learn to manage So their mood has got better,

:01:53.:01:55.

they've told us they've been able to sleep better,

:01:56.:02:02.

that they've not felt so aggressive. And it's a service that's

:02:03.:02:08.

needed in the island. There were 54 cases

:02:09.:02:11.

of sexual abuse of under-18s In the years since,

:02:12.:02:13.

the number's grown to around 70. That's a similar rate to the UK

:02:14.:02:18.

when compared with population size. The service is being

:02:19.:02:22.

funded by the Health and Social Services Department -

:02:23.:02:24.

?50,000 a year for With the findings of the inquiry

:02:25.:02:26.

into Jersey's care services due out this month, was that what prompted

:02:27.:02:32.

this new investment? I guess it was the catalyst

:02:33.:02:36.

to some extent. All of this has been partly

:02:37.:02:38.

about what we learnt reading the transcripts,

:02:39.:02:40.

listening to the inquiry. Rather than wait until the inquiry

:02:41.:02:46.

gives us their recommendations, we wanted to provide

:02:47.:02:48.

a better environment But before that, the department

:02:49.:02:50.

faces the issue of hiring a specialist social worker -

:02:51.:03:00.

a sector that Jersey's previously A Former Director of Guernsey's

:03:01.:03:02.

Health and Social Care Services has been struck off by the Nursing

:03:03.:03:12.

and Midwifery Council, following the death of a baby

:03:13.:03:15.

at the island's maternity ward Jacqueline Gallienne worked at

:03:16.:03:17.

the Princess Elizabeth Hospital including failing to ensure

:03:18.:03:22.

adequate standard of care, and safe delivery of

:03:23.:03:29.

maternity services. The panel found these failings

:03:30.:03:32.

put patients at risk. Guernsey's Health and Social Care

:03:33.:03:35.

Committee has responded saying substantial changes have been made

:03:36.:03:38.

in midwifery practices A code of conduct complaint made

:03:39.:03:40.

against three senior politicians The three deputies -

:03:41.:03:48.

Lyndon Trott, Mary Lowe and Paul Le Pelley -

:03:49.:03:52.

were accused of suggesting that Deputy Marc Leadbeater could not

:03:53.:03:55.

carry out his political responsibilities because

:03:56.:04:00.

he has a disabled son. The new chairwoman of

:04:01.:04:03.

the States Members' Conduct Panel - who has been in post for less

:04:04.:04:06.

than two days - says she's not satisfied there is sufficient

:04:07.:04:09.

evidence to support the complaints. A forensic medical examiner has told

:04:10.:04:15.

an attempted murder trial that if the victim's neck wound had been

:04:16.:04:18.

any deeper he would have died. Gerard Eamon Maguire denies

:04:19.:04:23.

the attempted murder of his friend Shaun Patrick Howard in the early

:04:24.:04:26.

hours of October the 30th Dr Virginia French told

:04:27.:04:29.

the Royal Court had Mr Howard's neck wound been deeper,

:04:30.:04:34.

he would not have "There's no such thing

:04:35.:04:36.

as an automatic pay rise". That's according to the head

:04:37.:04:49.

of a union representing It follows claims by the island's

:04:50.:04:51.

top politician that the States could save money by removing

:04:52.:04:57.

an automatic pay rise for employees. There are around 5,000 people

:04:58.:05:00.

working for the States of Guernsey. The island's most senior politician

:05:01.:05:07.

claims the States could save money by removing an automatic pay rise

:05:08.:05:12.

for civil servants. But the local civil servants

:05:13.:05:17.

association of Guernsey says "there's no such thing

:05:18.:05:19.

as an automatic pay rise". A job will be evaluated and it will

:05:20.:05:34.

be determined that the rate of that job it is, say, ?27,000 a year and

:05:35.:05:38.

what they do within the states is scaled back three or four implements

:05:39.:05:42.

backwards and so a new starter coming into that post will be

:05:43.:05:46.

started on ?25,000 per year and what will happen is over the years, as

:05:47.:05:51.

they gain knowledge and experience and qualifications, they will work

:05:52.:05:54.

their way up through steps back up to that ?27,000.

:05:55.:06:01.

The chief executive of the state has spent more than ?240 million on

:06:02.:06:02.

starting in 2015. He says pay rises have

:06:03.:06:04.

already been reigned in. Pay rises have been substantially

:06:05.:06:12.

controlled across the public sector and we have seen more two-year pay

:06:13.:06:15.

deals, which in real terms they have not been the increases as such.

:06:16.:06:18.

But when it's public money it's an issue that'll always be close

:06:19.:06:21.

E petitions could be introduced in Jersey -

:06:22.:06:30.

allowing people to have more of a say in the issues

:06:31.:06:33.

It's being suggested that online petitions could force

:06:34.:06:36.

a States debate if it attracting enough signatures.

:06:37.:06:40.

The system is popular in the UK - where recently more than a million

:06:41.:06:44.

people opposed a State Visit by the American President

:06:45.:06:46.

but in Jersey it's thought it could make politics

:06:47.:06:48.

I think we've seen a number of things recently in the Galaxy S4 we

:06:49.:06:58.

have talked about herself and it has not about the wider public of

:06:59.:07:02.

Jersey. We are as guilty of doing it as anyone else. If the people of

:07:03.:07:06.

Jersey are passionate and want us to be talking about something, that is

:07:07.:07:10.

what we are there to do. There's a drive to recruit more

:07:11.:07:12.

foster carers in Guernsey. The Family Placement Service says

:07:13.:07:15.

having a bigger pool of people to choose from helps make sure

:07:16.:07:17.

the most suitable home can be found. It's been holding drop in sessions

:07:18.:07:20.

at Beau Sejour today. We've spoken to those

:07:21.:07:23.

involved in fostering. Some families struggle to cope. They

:07:24.:07:41.

have a lot of pressures on them. Sometimes they are in poverty and

:07:42.:07:44.

health problems with substance misuse. Children come into foster

:07:45.:07:47.

care for a number of reasons and with that, they bring a lot of

:07:48.:07:51.

anxiety. They may bring some behaviours that foster carers need

:07:52.:07:54.

to understand and learn to deal with. The positive thing is

:07:55.:08:00.

fostering can really help children overcome some of those difficulties.

:08:01.:08:02.

There were a few challenges to begin with. But surprisingly, he settles

:08:03.:08:11.

very quick. To watch that child develop and become more confident,

:08:12.:08:19.

more outgoing, we are really enjoying it. It is really good fun.

:08:20.:08:23.

And he really makes you smile everyday. I think the people need to

:08:24.:08:28.

really care about children and be interested in their welfare. They

:08:29.:08:32.

need to be kind and thoughtful. They don't need to be perfect. They need

:08:33.:08:36.

to understand where a child is coming from and I think you have got

:08:37.:08:41.

to have a genuine, kind of, care and thought that things can get better

:08:42.:08:44.

for a child. If you are sitting on the fence, you have been thinking

:08:45.:08:50.

about it, as I had, for a very long time, you will not regret it. It is

:08:51.:08:55.

massively rewarding. It is just wonderful. We enjoy it so much. And

:08:56.:08:58.

wished we had done it earlier! Now you may have seen fictional

:08:59.:09:00.

characters come to life across the Channel Islands today -

:09:01.:09:03.

that is of course And you've been sending

:09:04.:09:05.

in your characters. Here's Beatrice dressed

:09:06.:09:09.

as Betty O'Barley Winter spent today as "Crazy Dave"

:09:10.:09:10.

from Plants vs Zombies - Lacey went with an animal theme

:09:11.:09:17.

for 101 D almations - where Poppy went with an aqua theme

:09:18.:09:30.

for the Singing Mermaid. And here's the whole

:09:31.:09:33.

of Les Landes primary school enjoying World Book Day -

:09:34.:09:35.

and even some of the staff joined in the fun as Snow White

:09:36.:09:38.

and Mrs Trunchbull from Matilda. I was trying to think

:09:39.:09:40.

who you could have been, David, I came up with Raymond

:09:41.:09:45.

Briggs' Snowman. I love your costume, by the way,

:09:46.:09:58.

that is brilliant! Lets have a look at the forecast for the next couple

:09:59.:10:02.

of days. We are going to see lots of rain in the forecast. Welcome for

:10:03.:10:06.

some. I am sure the reservoirs will appreciate some rain, but if you are

:10:07.:10:09.

out and about not to welcome at all. Rather cloudy. Some showers, if not

:10:10.:10:14.

longer spells of rain. A little but milder if you're out working in the

:10:15.:10:16.

feel. Temperatures a little higher than they have of cloud on the

:10:17.:10:39.

sideline, two land is approaching. One will merge with the other and

:10:40.:10:42.

these two combined to form an area of low pressure eventually. As one

:10:43.:10:45.

line of rain comes up from the south and develops into an area of low

:10:46.:10:47.

pressure, sat pretty close by for Friday and whistles on Saturday as

:10:48.:10:50.

well. Saturday, I think, will see some sunshine and a few showers

:10:51.:10:52.

dotted around. Not many this evening but later on tonight," and from the

:10:53.:10:54.

side. That is already apparent across northern part of France.

:10:55.:10:57.

Producing outbreaks of rain as a whole lot will move northwards. Try

:10:58.:10:59.

for a time, increasingly cloudy and later on this evening, the wet

:11:00.:11:01.

weather will turn up. Accompanying that, strong south-easterly winds

:11:02.:11:03.

and overnight temperatures no lower than 6 degrees. Spots of rain in the

:11:04.:11:06.

morning tomorrow, briefly some brightness, maybe a few walls and

:11:07.:11:09.

the cloud to let the sunshine in every now and again. Later in the

:11:10.:11:14.

day, the showers will return. 11 or 12 degrees will be maximum

:11:15.:11:17.

temperature and brisk winds from the south and south-west. Using with the

:11:18.:11:22.

second half of the day. They are as our times of high water. And for our

:11:23.:11:32.

showers, most of the beaches protected from a cyber

:11:33.:11:36.

south-easterly wind will actually be clean, so not too bad. When the

:11:37.:11:39.

southerly, eventually veering south westerly. Degreasing four, rain at

:11:40.:11:49.

times, moderate disability. That is the forecast as the two Saturday and

:11:50.:11:52.

sunny. A few showers dotted around, brisk winds from the West and those

:11:53.:11:56.

showers likely to be quite heavy. Temperatures holding up, perhaps a

:11:57.:11:59.

little bit holder at night-time, funding made and also Monday night,

:12:00.:12:03.

as the showers tend to fade when you get some clear skies. On the whole,

:12:04.:12:06.

and unsettled picture for the next four or five days and that unsettled

:12:07.:12:10.

theme continues into the early part of next week. Alison.

:12:11.:12:14.

David, thank you ever much. That is it from the team in the Channel

:12:15.:12:17.

Islands. I will leave you with Spotlight.

:12:18.:12:22.

Official figures show its risen for the third year in a row.

:12:23.:12:25.

And it appears people from Plymouth are dumping

:12:26.:12:28.

their rubbish in Cornwall - evidence found in the waste has

:12:29.:12:31.

sparked an investigation which Cornwall Council hopes

:12:32.:12:33.

will end in prosecution and a heavy fine.

:12:34.:12:35.

Throughout the year thousands of people across the Tamar to seek out

:12:36.:12:50.

those hidden corners of Cornwall which promise natural beauty and

:12:51.:12:54.

tranquillity. Others are doing it to dump rubbish illegally. I think it's

:12:55.:12:59.

disgusting. Someone has taken the rubbish and just dump it in an area

:13:00.:13:04.

of outstanding natural beauty and its utter laziness. Dumped along the

:13:05.:13:12.

coast road is a spoil which holds hidden treasures. The sort of James

:13:13.:13:17.

which Cornwall Council investigators delight in finding. A letterhead,

:13:18.:13:23.

maybe a bill, certainly evidence revealing it has come from an

:13:24.:13:28.

address in Plymouth. I feel even sadder that someone has taken the

:13:29.:13:34.

time to drive out from Plymouth, find somewhere secluded and this was

:13:35.:13:39.

tipped during the night we believe. There are recycling centres in

:13:40.:13:42.

Plymouth as well as the one they virtually drove past in Saltash. The

:13:43.:13:48.

audacity of the act has sparked anger. It is appalling. They could

:13:49.:13:55.

go to a municipal tip or get rid of it in the proper way, I don't see

:13:56.:13:59.

why they have to come over the border and do it here. It makes me

:14:00.:14:02.

wonder if they have the facilities to get rid of it in Devon, to make

:14:03.:14:07.

that ever to come over the border into Cornwall to do it. People

:14:08.:14:11.

travel a long way to save a bit of money, that is why they are

:14:12.:14:15.

criminals, they are commercial, they are thieves, stealing from the

:14:16.:14:18.

public purse and every single council taxpayer because those

:14:19.:14:23.

things have to be cleared up. In a statement Cornwall Council says it

:14:24.:14:27.

is not only unsightly but costs the council thousands of pounds each

:14:28.:14:31.

year to clear up the mess. We will continue to respond, investigate and

:14:32.:14:34.

where evidence is found we will take appropriate enforcement action. Once

:14:35.:14:41.

cherished, now discarded by the roadside. There would have been no

:14:42.:14:44.

charge to take these toys to the tip.

:14:45.:14:47.

A commercial recycling waste centre faces demolition tonight

:14:48.:14:49.

after being severely damaged by fire.

:14:50.:14:53.

At its peak a hundred firefighters tackled the blaze

:14:54.:14:55.

All the ingredients needed for a devastating fire, paper, cardboard,

:14:56.:15:10.

plastic, each week hundreds of tonnes of business waste came to

:15:11.:15:19.

this recycling plant. Tucked away on one side, an electricity substation,

:15:20.:15:24.

one of three helping power the industrial estate. Little wonder the

:15:25.:15:28.

emergency services were not taking any chances. At its height it was

:15:29.:15:35.

approximately about 100 firefighters, three hydraulic

:15:36.:15:38.

platforms, and support appliances. The alarm was raised just before 11

:15:39.:15:43.

o'clock last night, the intense heat caused the steel panel building to

:15:44.:15:47.

collapse in on itself as it is designed to do. But it meant

:15:48.:15:52.

hotspots kept flaring up. It is well over 12 hours but there are still

:15:53.:15:55.

pockets of flames are popping up in and around the building. The area

:15:56.:16:00.

was blanketed in smoke but the owners of the plant, on-site for

:16:01.:16:04.

five years, said it did not deal hazardous waste. Only office type

:16:05.:16:11.

waste, we do not deal with hazardous waste here. Any hazardous waste goes

:16:12.:16:19.

to other places. But yes, General office recycling, paper, cardboard,

:16:20.:16:25.

plastics, whatever. The damage has been put out millions but nobody was

:16:26.:16:29.

hurt and the 90 or so staff will work from other sites. A 15 strong

:16:30.:16:35.

fleet of waste trucks was saved, this one had to be pulled free by a

:16:36.:16:38.

recovery truck with an uncompromising name. Another

:16:39.:16:45.

building in Exeter destroyed by fire.

:16:46.:16:47.

The Environment Agency says erosion at Dawlish Warren has worsened

:16:48.:16:50.

since it began its multi million pound scheme to improve coastal

:16:51.:16:53.

But it says the beach should return to its former glory by the end

:16:54.:16:58.

of the summer and be less vulnerable to rising sea levels and storms.

:16:59.:17:02.

Our Environment Correspondent Adrian Campbell reports

:17:03.:17:03.

Dawlish Warren is not looking at its best at the moment. In fact some

:17:04.:17:19.

local people say it has never looked worse. That's not surprising because

:17:20.:17:23.

the Environment Agency is only part way through a multi-million pound

:17:24.:17:28.

project to secure the long-term future of the area. The aim of the

:17:29.:17:31.

agency and its partners is to protect it from sea-level level

:17:32.:17:35.

rising and potentially splitting in two. Eileen has been keeping a close

:17:36.:17:39.

eye on progress. I wondered what they were doing, sandbags, stones,

:17:40.:17:47.

rocks. We always said if they moved the stones they would lose the Junes

:17:48.:17:51.

which they found they had done which is why we have sandbags up. They

:17:52.:17:57.

have been taking these baskets full of rocks and replacing them with

:17:58.:18:03.

bags full of sand. In the end they aim to reach the beast level.

:18:04.:18:08.

Whether Junes are at their most vulnerable and narrow the aim is to

:18:09.:18:13.

stabilise the sand with what experts College YouTube. It's about like a

:18:14.:18:17.

giant sausage fed deep into the sea facing edge of the Warren and

:18:18.:18:21.

inflated with a mix of sand and water. The water fades away to leave

:18:22.:18:28.

a concrete like structure. For now the Environment Agency are still

:18:29.:18:31.

persuading people it is doing the right thing. Other than extra sand?

:18:32.:18:41.

Recent storms, in recent years, more than a thousand cubic metres of sand

:18:42.:18:45.

have been lost in the last 18 months. Sand levels dropping by a

:18:46.:18:49.

metre in all the last few weeks so at the moment visitors will see it

:18:50.:18:55.

at its worst. The white bags people see our temporary, they are coming

:18:56.:18:58.

out in the next couple of months as we remove the old stones and

:18:59.:19:01.

subsequently replace a large amount of sand. The Environment Agency says

:19:02.:19:08.

by some things should look much better at Dawlish Warren. It plans

:19:09.:19:12.

to import huge quantities of sand from just off shore to recharge the

:19:13.:19:16.

beach and then natural forces will be harnessed to help protect the

:19:17.:19:17.

sand dunes. Children from across the South West

:19:18.:19:20.

have been dressing up in their favourite characters

:19:21.:19:22.

to take part in The day's aimed at encouraging

:19:23.:19:24.

youngsters to explore books and reading -

:19:25.:19:30.

it's also a celebration of authors and illustrators

:19:31.:19:32.

and children have been given a free Jane Chandler joined

:19:33.:19:34.

a group of children - as they marched into their local

:19:35.:19:37.

bookshop dressed for bedtime. Let us step into the night and

:19:38.:19:52.

pursue that flighty temptress, adventure. It does not do to leave

:19:53.:20:00.

alive dragon out of your calculations if you live near him.

:20:01.:20:08.

Sometimes I believe as many as six impossible things before breakfast.

:20:09.:20:16.

The world of books is full of all things possible, even wearing your

:20:17.:20:21.

bed clothes during the day. These children have dressed up to get in

:20:22.:20:24.

the mood for reading to celebrate world book day. But why do they

:20:25.:20:32.

read? I read at night when I am in bed and cannot sleep. When you first

:20:33.:20:35.

read a book you just read it and when you get to the end you feel you

:20:36.:20:40.

have an achievement. They are very exciting and I get stuck into them.

:20:41.:20:46.

If you finish a book then you feel like you want to do another because

:20:47.:20:49.

I like this book and it makes you want to read and read and read. We

may think these youngsters are a techno generation but they are more

:20:56.:20:58.

retro, preparing to read books rather than from a computer or

:20:59.:21:03.

tablet. There has been research recently that children are moving

:21:04.:21:07.

away from tablets and re-engaging with a book particularly at bedtime

:21:08.:21:11.

when is thought the blue light from the tablet is not such a good thing.

:21:12.:21:16.

A recent study by the National literacy trust shows more children

:21:17.:21:20.

and young people than ever are now reading for enjoyment. Evidence

:21:21.:21:24.

suggests youngsters who read for one day lead to better in reading tests,

:21:25.:21:30.

have broader vocabulary and better general knowledge. All very good

:21:31.:21:35.

reasons to snuggle down with a book at bedtime. Part of what we believe

:21:36.:21:39.

is that reading before bed can reduce anxiety, it's a lovely way to

:21:40.:21:43.

go off to sleep and it's the perfect time to get kids to sneak 30 minutes

:21:44.:21:50.

of reading in. I like to read at bedtime and of course in school. I

:21:51.:21:57.

read every night, like half an hour in the evening, just before I go to

:21:58.:22:03.

sleep. What makes you want to do that? It comes me down before I go

:22:04.:22:11.

to bed. Or you cannot help that, said the cat, we are all mad here.

:22:12.:22:18.

So come snow after fire and even dragons have their endings.

Nothing like a good book. A book at bedtime. Let's see what the

:22:29.:22:32.

weather's story is tonight. The storm cat is coming, if you know

:22:33.:22:44.

that story. Good evening, blustery conditions, rain in the forecast as

:22:45.:22:49.

well. I think tomorrow it's a different day, sunshine today, a few

:22:50.:22:54.

isolated showers, most of us dry. Tomorrow rather cloudy, it will be a

:22:55.:22:58.

bit milder, there will be rain at times and some of it quite heavy. It

:22:59.:23:02.

will arrive overnight tonight and be with us for a good part of the day.

:23:03.:23:07.

This is why, this area of low pressure, weather fronts wrapped

:23:08.:23:10.

around it which means more rain as we move through the day. Perhaps

:23:11.:23:14.

drier conditions on Saturday although the risk of showers and

:23:15.:23:19.

more rain returning on Sunday as this weather front moves across the

:23:20.:23:24.

south-west of England. Also becoming windy on Sunday with the winds

:23:25.:23:28.

becoming north-westerly again. Drawing in slightly colder air,

:23:29.:23:35.

avail of cloud has arrived and thicker cloud approaching from the

:23:36.:23:39.

South which will produce more persistent rain. For a time dry and

:23:40.:23:43.

then here comes the wet weather, around midnight or just after we

:23:44.:23:48.

will get a bit of rain as it moves through, turning showery by morning

:23:49.:23:50.

and with all the cloud and breeze from the Southeast I don't think

:23:51.:23:55.

temperatures will fall much below 67 degrees. Tomorrow we have a rather

:23:56.:24:00.

cloudy day, rather wet day, I of rain off and on throughout the

:24:01.:24:03.

morning, perhaps briefly at lunchtime holes in the cloud but not

:24:04.:24:13.

a great deal of that to look forward to, the rain returns to the

:24:14.:24:15.

afternoon. The breeze will be lively in the morning and ease in the

:24:16.:24:18.

afternoon. Some good news, temperature slightly higher than

:24:19.:24:24.

they have been despite the rain. This is the forecast for the Isles

:24:25.:24:33.

of Scilly. Cloud, breezy and outbreaks of rain. Time is of high

:24:34.:24:37.

water for the ports and harbours. For the surfers, most of the beach

:24:38.:24:56.

is likely to be a bit messy, particularly along the south coast.

:24:57.:24:59.

The north Coast some sheltered areas which could be usable but still

:25:00.:25:04.

quite big waves, between four and eight feet depending on which way

:25:05.:25:13.

the beach faces. The winds quite gusty, from the South South West,

:25:14.:25:21.

rain at times with moderate to good visibility. The outlook is for us to

:25:22.:25:25.

see showers on Saturday and Sunday and some of them also quite heavy.

:25:26.:25:31.

Not a lot of cheer in the forecast and notice the temperatures, we

:25:32.:25:35.

start at 11 on Friday but by Monday and Tuesday of next week back down

:25:36.:25:40.

to seven or eight so despite the fact we are into spring temperatures

:25:41.:25:44.

are not responding. Just a little bit of sunshine does help things.

:25:45.:25:48.

You have been seeing all these weather pictures and if you want to

get involved in the programme there is a website you can go to. BBC .co

pictures. And on World Book day that's

:26:02.:26:05.

where our story draws to a close. But we'll leave you with some
