Just days left to apply for Christmas lottery grant

There's just days left for local charities and groups to apply for a grant from last year's Christmas lottery.

This year there will be a substantially larger sum of money for us to distribute.

The 2014 Christmas Lottery broke all records with its ticket sales and, additionally, the States agreed last September to close the account for lottery forfeited prizes and give the Association over £97,000 for local charities.

This is a great opportunity for us to help as many charities as possible, with projects and schemes throughout the island.

Appeal underway for 5.5 year prison sentence

"Unlucky" Andy Priaulx finishes 12th in Daytona 24 hour race

Guernsey driver, Andy Priaulx, rued an "unheard of" sequence of events which led to his team finishing down in 12th place, in their class, in the Rolex 24 at Daytona.

Their Turner Motorsport BMW only managed to complete 604 laps of the 3.56 mile course compared with the class winning car's 701.

It was a great effort by the team to just get the car home. We had a terrible start to the race.

We were really unlucky to have not one gear box problem, but two separate issues which is just unheard of, especially as the parts and mileage were all good.

The guys did an awesome job to just finish the race and it showed an awful lot of determination.

– Andy Priaulx

The team finished 30th overall in Florida.

Next up for the Sarnian is the '12 hours of Sebring' race, which takes place on March 21st.

Boys smash woman's car window as she parks

Police are searching for three boys in connection with an attack on a woman's car as she was parking in Jersey.

The woman was in a disabled bay in Vauxhall Street near the junction of Bath Street in St Helier when the three boys allegedly ran towards her and threw a small stone at the rear window of her car.

The window shattered and the boys then ran off in the direction of Nelson Street, police say.

The boys are described as aged between 11 and 12 years, with dark hair and wearing dark clothing.

ITV Channel TV to draw Natwest Island Games Football clashes tonight

ITV Channel Television will be drawing the Natwest Island Games football competition tonight.

Our Sports Correspondent, Rob Jones, will host it from Springfield Stadium.

There will be build up on ITV News on Channel at 6pm before the draw itself is streamed live on our website, www.itv.com/channel.

Hosts, Jersey, and Guernsey are seeded for the tournament meaning they can't meet one another until at least the semi-finals.

Alderney are also involved, but are not seeded, which means they could be in a group with either of their island neighbours.

Expectant parents can now apply for social housing sooner in their pregnancy

Expectant parents on low incomes in Jersey will now be considered for housing sooner in their pregnancy.

The Strategic Housing Unit has reduced the time of assessment for the Affordable Housing Gateway from 30 to 24 weeks.

It is to give the expectant mother more time to secure accommodation, and because the Department recognises that moving home when pregnant can be challenging.

The Affordable Housing Gateway is the point of access for all affordable housing in the island. All the islands affordable housing providers, including Andium Homes and housing trusts, allocate homes to applicants who have been assessed as eligible through the Gateway.

Households with young children qualify for housing through the Gateway provided they have a joint income of less than £40,000 per year.
