And, after the last couple of days of lovely weather, it will be a

shock when we see more cloud around tomorrow, and the chance of a future

hours. A backlash over efforts

:00:00.:00:11.

to control population growth in the Channel Islands

:00:12.:00:15.

is continuing, after the introduction of new laws

:00:16.:00:17.

in Guernsey a month ago. The company Hand Picked Hotels,

:00:18.:00:19.

which owns businesses in both Guernsey and Jersey,

:00:20.:00:22.

says recent changes to policies will make it hard to recruit

:00:23.:00:25.

and will have a significant impact A typical start to the day

at a Channel Islands hotel, with staff working hard to look

after business guests and tourists. And behind the scenes,

Sandra from Romania, But changes to laws in Guernsey mean

effect on the tourism Firstly I think it's

:01:22.:01:24.

going to detract people from wanting to come to Guernsey to work,

:01:25.:01:28.

if they know they have an end date of five years as

:01:29.:01:31.

the absolute maximum. I think that's going to be very

:01:32.:01:33.

discouraging for people to come to work within the industry

:01:34.:01:36.

here within Guernsey. And secondly, from our point

:01:37.:01:38.

of view, we've just invested a lot of money and time in training people

:01:39.:01:41.

to work within the hotel and then to find that their service is cut

:01:42.:01:45.

short through a regulation No control perhaps,

:01:46.:01:48.

but a chance for input, yes, according to the committee

:01:49.:01:52.

behind the changes. But it's a problem in Jersey too,

where the States took steps earlier this year to reduce

after starting a fire when trying to smoke while attached

strongly depends on what happens this year with regard to the output

of varieties and the oil, the yield and the economics of bringing the

machinery in to handle it. But when we are approached by organisations

the aeroplane and you're away. It misses the hassle and time

:05:10.:05:12.

of going through the airport. Jersey and Guernsey athletes have

:05:13.:05:14.

been struggling to get to inter-insular games

:05:15.:05:17.

and competitions in the UK. So could these new airlines

:05:18.:05:19.

offer a solution? Anybody that comes up with an idea

:05:20.:05:22.

that can move people about across the islands into the UK

:05:23.:05:25.

or even into France, The only thing I say,

:05:26.:05:28.

I gather it's an eight-seater, and most sports, even if you're

:05:29.:05:34.

in a team of four, still need to take two or three other people,

:05:35.:05:37.

plus there's baggage and everything else, and I'm just a bit concerned

:05:38.:05:40.

that if it's not the seating that causes the problem,

:05:41.:05:43.

it's the luggage and the baggage and the equipment that goes with it,

:05:44.:05:47.

which is the unfortunate problem. Last week, Guernsey based airline

:05:48.:05:51.

Waves announced its plans to carry passengers to Jersey and Alderney

:05:52.:05:54.

before the end of the summer. But will these small businesses fill

:05:55.:05:56.

a gap in the market for passengers who want more flexibility

:05:57.:05:59.

without paying the earth? As Guernsey looks to improve

:06:00.:06:08.

the care offered to people with mental health issues,

:06:09.:06:10.

it's claimed the focus Health officials say this facility,

:06:11.:06:12.

which opened two years ago, has made a big difference,

:06:13.:06:18.

and that other initiatives are in the pipeline,

:06:19.:06:20.

but ultimately it's a problem the island as a whole

:06:21.:06:22.

needs to think about. It is the responsibility of the

:06:23.:06:35.

community as a whole, rather than the committee for social health and

:06:36.:06:38.

care to deliver on this. It is as much about the environment you live

:06:39.:06:42.

in, whether you are rich or poor, your education and so one, as it is

:06:43.:06:44.

about to mental health. A Jersey artist has created

:06:45.:06:47.

the centrepiece for a charity garden Described as the Chelsea

:06:48.:06:50.

flower show of the North, the RHS Tatton Flower show

:06:51.:06:54.

will include an exhibition garden based on a Crohn's patient's

:06:55.:06:56.

experience of the disease. And Nicholas Romeril's

:06:57.:06:59.

sculpture will feature in it. Called A Sharp Intake Of Breath,

:07:00.:07:01.

it'll be the centre piece of a concept garden commissioned

:07:02.:07:09.

by the bowel disease charity It's been a collaborative challenge

:07:10.:07:14.

that's taken more than a year. I made some little paper models,

:07:15.:07:21.

I made some wire sculptures, The end result is a

:07:22.:07:23.

negotiating process really. And actually, it's like the very

:07:24.:07:31.

first ideas I came up with. From there it's

:07:32.:07:37.

a manufacture process. I'm very intuitively bending it

:07:38.:07:41.

and welding it together, And that's where his

:07:42.:07:47.

son Will comes in. We're both creative people,

:07:48.:07:53.

so it's nice to bring the two together and work together

:07:54.:08:04.

on things, so there's been odd bits and bobs that I've helped him with,

:08:05.:08:10.

but it's nice to get involved in something like this where it's

:08:11.:08:13.

a bit more hands on and it's a bit And the sculpture rests

:08:14.:08:20.

here for now, but on July 17th an expected 75,000 people will be

looking at it when it goes on David, all we need is

:08:24.:08:26.

the wind to drop a little A big change for us. We are going to

:08:27.:08:44.

see some rain, not everywhere and it won't be particularly heavy. Showers

:08:45.:08:48.

for the next two days, but a subtle change in the type of whether we are

:08:49.:08:53.

seeing. First of all an increase in humidity. That will give the risk of

:08:54.:08:56.

some missed patches and the chance of a few showers. More cloud around

:08:57.:09:01.

than we have been used to, and still some sunshine. Quite humid air

:09:02.:09:04.

coming from Spain, Portugal and western France. That will produce

:09:05.:09:10.

the showers, which are currently falling as frequent showers across

:09:11.:09:14.

western parts of France right now. Battle Creek Northwoods later this

:09:15.:09:19.

evening. So, the chance of a few passing showers and more to come as

:09:20.:09:23.

the move into Friday and the start of the weekend. A change from all

:09:24.:09:28.

this dry weather we are used to do something a little bit more

:09:29.:09:31.

unsettled. The showers overnight tonight will be fleeting and not a

:09:32.:09:39.

great deal of rainfall. Tomorrow we will see briefly some sunshine, but

:09:40.:09:44.

also a lot of cloud around. One or two showers, by the end of the day,

:09:45.:09:47.

they will be likely heavy and quite a warm, muggy day tomorrow. 16-18dC.

:09:48.:10:03.

Not a great deal of surf, but the waves to pick up into the start of

:10:04.:10:10.

the weekend. The winds are easterly, and eventually southerly. Showers

:10:11.:10:16.

and more trip to good visibility. More showers on Friday. Slightly

:10:17.:10:22.

less humid air, but still quite warm with sunshine in between the

:10:23.:10:26.

showers. For the start of the recount some fine weather around,

:10:27.:10:31.

and the rain may fall on Saturday night, so we might get away with two

:10:32.:10:35.

relatively dry days, but cooler and fresher on Sunday. Thank you, David.

:10:36.:10:44.

A reminder of our top story. A backlash over efforts to control

:10:45.:10:47.

population growth in the Channel Islands is continuing. The company,

:10:48.:10:53.

hand-picked hotels, which owns businesses in both Guernsey and

:10:54.:10:56.

Jersey says recent changes to policies will make it hard to

:10:57.:10:59.

recruit and will have a significant impact on tourism in the islands.

:11:00.:11:02.

And if you have a story to share with us do get in touch.

:11:03.:11:05.

Until then from me and the rest of the Channel Islands team,

:11:06.:11:08.

Eating disorders are often blamed on the social pressure

:11:09.:11:16.

to look a certain way, the causes are usually complex

:11:17.:11:19.

and the care given locally criticised.

:11:20.:11:23.

Two students from Exeter who have battled anorexia

:11:24.:11:25.

are calling for more support, with Devon and Cornwall having

:11:26.:11:30.

the third highest number of admissions to hospital in England.

:11:31.:11:33.

As Harriet Bradshaw reports, the campaigners want to see

:11:34.:11:35.

more preventative care made available locally.

:11:36.:11:36.

Exams fast approaching, but there's more on these students'

:11:37.:11:38.

Jennifer and Charlotte are campaigning for better services

:11:39.:11:43.

in Exeter to deal with eating disorders because they don't feel

:11:44.:11:47.

they've had enough help through their battles with anorexia.

:11:48.:11:52.

Because of the massive amount of hospital admissions in the Devon

:11:53.:11:59.

area, there wasn't any beds in Devon for me to be admitted

:12:00.:12:02.

as an inpatient with an eating disorder, so they sent me 4.5 hours

:12:03.:12:06.

away to the other side of the country to go and get

:12:07.:12:08.

treatment because that's the only bed they could find

:12:09.:12:11.

I'd like to see more available services for therapy for all kinds

:12:12.:12:21.

of eating disorders so that it doesn't have to get to the critical

:12:22.:12:24.

point of being told, you gain weight or you go to hospital.

:12:25.:12:27.

According to the latest official data, Devon and Cornwall as a region

:12:28.:12:31.

has the third highest number of hospital admissions relating

:12:32.:12:33.

And it's the North Eastern and Western Devon Clinical

:12:34.:12:40.

Commissioning Group that's had the biggest numbers

:12:41.:12:42.

in the south-west, with 121 admissions to its hospitals

:12:43.:12:47.

in 2015-16, almost double the numbers five years previous.

:12:48.:12:51.

And these students blame a lack of outpatient care.

:12:52.:12:58.

In response, the Devon CCG told us the Exeter-based inpatient unit

:12:59.:13:04.

for people with the most severe eating disorders is

:13:05.:13:06.

It also says that although it hasn't yet commissioned a dedicated

:13:07.:13:13.

eating disorders service but there is support for them

:13:14.:13:18.

within the overall community mental health service.

:13:19.:13:20.

We need people even higher up than the doctors to realise

:13:21.:13:24.

that there's a problem, to realise that the

:13:25.:13:36.

It's people's lives the messing around with

:13:37.:13:39.

NHS England is investing ?30 million nationally to enhance community

:13:40.:13:43.

eating disorder services for young people.

:13:44.:13:44.

Businesses in Bude in north Cornwall have turned to street art in a bid

:13:45.:13:52.

It started with one restaurant but, as Christine Butler has been

:13:53.:13:58.

finding out, it's been spreading to others in the town.

:13:59.:14:08.

needed. Bude is booming but can it needed. Bude is booming but can it

:14:09.:14:20.

also be beautiful? Sandwiched between the hoardings, this

:14:21.:14:24.

Peterborough says a lost customers when building work started next

:14:25.:14:28.

door. They consider taking local action but then it decided to turn

:14:29.:14:33.

to street art. Never having trouble because they were blocked after

:14:34.:14:41.

debugging works. -- they were blocked because of building work.

:14:42.:14:46.

People now go because the artwork, it gives them on the high street.

:14:47.:14:49.

It's created a lot of interest. Now other Bude

:14:50.:14:53.

businesses are jumping From the local fishmongers

:14:54.:14:54.

to the complementary therapist, Steve's already got

:14:55.:14:57.

another seven commissions to complete - and he doesn't charge

:14:58.:14:59.

for his service, just the paint. Doing something that will benefit

:15:00.:15:07.

the community as a whole will be great. We got in touch with him and

:15:08.:15:09.

we went from there. The Premier Inn says

:15:10.:15:12.

its working with the pizzeria to minimize the disruption

:15:13.:15:14.

while it build its hotel. We have positive feedback. I'm not

:15:15.:15:23.

in it for the promotion. I just enjoy doing it. That's my payment. I

:15:24.:15:30.

do it for the price of the pain. Local traders hope that their pride

:15:31.:15:39.

in California image will create a new impact. -- they're bright and

:15:40.:15:43.

colourful images will create an impact and bring business.

:15:44.:15:48.

Good evening, on Spotlight tonight, what caused the collapse of a huge

:15:49.:15:53.

In a tiny wooded hollow in Devon, ancient woodland

:15:54.:15:55.

Volunteers on Dartmoor are bringing a derelict coppice back into use.

:15:56.:15:59.

They're using the wood to make items such as beanpoles -

:16:00.:16:02.

It's a process that takes time and patience,

:16:03.:16:05.

but as Clare Woodling found out, it could be good for

:16:06.:16:07.

High-tech doesn't come into it, but this hands-on approach

:16:08.:16:11.

is still a way to make a living in 2017.

:16:12.:16:13.

So say the coppicers here in Dartmoor.

:16:14.:16:16.

They are bringing these hazel trees back into use.

:16:17.:16:18.

My dream for this site is for it to be a fully working coppice,

:16:19.:16:22.

back to how it would have been hundreds of years ago when people

:16:23.:16:25.

used it for all the various things they wanted to make out of hazel,

:16:26.:16:28.

and the skills that they used, the traditional skills that actually

:16:29.:16:31.

are not as much appreciated as they used to be.

:16:32.:16:33.

Coppicing involves cutting a mature tree to the ground.

:16:34.:16:39.

The remaining stool grows small stems.

:16:40.:16:41.

These are harvested to make pea sticks, bean poles, fencing hurdles

:16:42.:16:46.

At the moment, many of these things are imported.

:16:47.:16:50.

Just take a pea stick or a beanpole, you go and look at an allotment

:16:51.:16:54.

site, there will be hundreds and hundreds of bamboo poles.

:16:55.:16:56.

They may have come all the way from China.

:16:57.:16:58.

Here in this woodland very soon, we will have

:16:59.:17:00.

Which are fantastic - locally made, locally produced,

:17:01.:17:04.

The coppice is divided into groups, which are cut back in rotation.

:17:05.:17:11.

This rod of hazel is exactly what the coppicers are looking for.

:17:12.:17:14.

It's long and straight and will clean easily

:17:15.:17:16.

to make spars and fencing and other things, too.

:17:17.:17:21.

So this is a quarter of a rod of hazel and we've now split it

:17:22.:17:27.

and now I just need to loosen the fibres and then give it

:17:28.:17:31.

a twist as a hairpin and now we've got a spar.

:17:32.:17:33.

It's what the thatcher drives into the roof material.

:17:34.:17:42.

The not-for-profit group behind this scheme says

:17:43.:17:48.

coppicing protects woodland, brings landowners and income

:17:49.:17:50.

People don't realise that a woodland that pays is more likely to be

:17:51.:17:54.

a woodland that stays because if a landowner has a piece

:17:55.:17:57.

of woodland they might just chop it down for firewood.

:17:58.:17:59.

Whereas if you have a really sustainable resource,

:18:00.:18:01.

like this, a coppice woodland, that can go on for every

:18:02.:18:11.

It will take the team seven or eight years to fully restore this hazel

:18:12.:18:15.

coppice and they hope it will protecting woodland

A world of adventure exists in every child's imagination,

Johnny Rutherford has been hearing her story.

and what you think about what is behind the magic door. Creativity
