Victoria College releases statement following the death of a student

Victoria College has issued a statement following the death of one of its students over the weekend.

Headmaster, Alan Watkins, describes Morgan Huelin as 'charismatic with a strong sense of independence' and that he was 'highly respected by both the staff and his peers at the College.'

The staff and Governors of Victoria College would like to extend their heartfelt condolences and prayers to the parents, family and friends of Morgan Huelin who has left us under such tragic circumstances.

Morgan was highly respected by both staff and his peers at the College, not least because of his academic ability, charismatic personality and strong sense of independence. Morgan had varied interests. He was an excellent guitarist and a fully supportive member of Dunlop House, contributing to it in every way he could including shooting, rugby, football and hockey.

The College will do all it can to offer support to those pupils, staff and families who have been affected by these heart-breaking events.

We are all incredibly stunned that such a genuinely honest and good natured young man has been taken from us under these circumstances.

Anti-shoplifter scheme relaunched

A scheme to crack down on shoplifters in Jersey has being relaunched.

It's called Shop Alert and from today shopkeepers will be able to log onto a central database for details of convicted shoplifters, as well as advice on how to deter thieves.

Offences have dropped by a quarter over the past five years.

The Town Police Unit has had a real impact on retail crime since its introduction in 2011. We want to develop this further with businesses and make sure we remain as accessible as possible to the town shops and retailers.

– Inspector Mark Coxshall

Jersey's cricketers thrashed in World T20 warm-up match

Jersey were beaten heavily by Afghanistan in their World T20 Qualifiers warm-up match, in Scotland, today.

The Caesareans won the toss and chose to bat but could not build any momentum at all during their innings, and were bowled out for just 46 in 10.2 overs.

Only two batsmen - Peter Gough and Cornelis Bodenstein, who both scored 12 - made it into double figures.

In reply, Afghanistan reached their victory target with more than 12 overs to spare and eight wickets in hand.

Jersey take on Scotland in their second warm-up match tomorrow, before the World T20 Qualifiers get underway on Saturday.

Neil McRae's side play Hong Kong first.

Jersey's Youth Enquiry Service have been posting messages on social media to remind young islanders the service is available for anyone who has been affected by the death of 16-year-old Morgan Huelin.

We are running our service as normal, what we've done is obviously put a link to our Facebook [page] and our website through some of the social media sites just so that more young people that might be looking at some of the social medial sites are aware of what we do. But in terms of what we're offering it's our drop-in service, they can email us they can phone us, people can drop in if they want to talk.
