Fraudsters targeting island

1279464_900

MORE than 80 islanders have been targeted by fraudsters so far this year – and those are just the ones Guernsey Police knows about.

Is new emergency services control room a necessity?

I DON’T think many of us have come away unscathed by the recent weather. Even if we have had no damage to our personal property, you only have to look around to see the devastation caused to the island, and, as its inhabitants, the cost of repairing that damage will be a burden to us all. So where do we find the money, already thought to be hundreds of thousands of pounds at least and it’s not over yet? I have an idea. Would it not be prudent to spend the money proposed for a joint emergency control room (thought to be in the region of £2m. to £3m.) on a more worthwhile and urgent cause?
