Newsroom Live – 1 March, 2013
Friday 1st March 2013, 9:41AM GMT.
The AFR case is continuing to keep the newsroom busy, and today we’re pursuing another angle on the story which has come to light and which we expect to make the news tomorrow.
We’ll also be catching up with some of the deputies who didn’t attend yesterday’s private meeting to discuss the situation to get their views on the matter.
A Suzuki jeep being sold in a car park at Vazon had its brakes cut recently, and police are warning owners of vehicles parked in the same area to be vigilant. We’ll be looking to talk to some of these owners today to get their reaction to the incident.
It was claimed in the States this week that some 700 local youngsters could have mental health problems. We’re expecting to hear from the Education Department today with their response to this.
We’ll also be talking to the owner of a dog whose pet was attacked by another dog while she was walking it at Cambridge Park earlier this week.
There’ll be a story in tomorrow’s paper about how a closed-circuit TV camera is being used to check sewers, and we’ll be visiting Le Rondin School which is receiving some new equipment today.
Tomorrow sees what is being touted as the biggest game in Guernsey FC’s history to date, as they visit Walsall to play in the quarter finals of the FA Vase. A couple of key players are returning for the game, and to follow its progress you can tap into our Twitter feed, @GuernseyPress. There’ll be a brief summary of the match on here as soon as possible after the final whistle.
In his Inside Track column tomorrow, Rob Batiste gives his thoughts on the newly announced College Football Academy, as well as his frank view on comments made earlier this week by a Jersey sports official who criticised the Guernsey Sports Commission.
And there’ll be looks ahead to the weekend’s rugby and netball, as well as the Guernsey men’s hockey team taking on EH Trophy holders Gateshead in the quarter-finals of the competition at Footes Lane.
