Protesters are expected to rally in St Helier today, calling for the resignation of Jersey's Assistant Chief Minister.

The St Helier Waterfront Action Group is asking islanders to join their demonstration at the Royal Square this afternoon.

It follows the revelation that up to £1.4 million of taxpayers' money could be lost, after the government lent money to start up businesses through the Innovation Fund.

The campaign group say they are 'deeply worried' about the ramifications of a recent report which slammed the fund, saying there is a 'lack of transparency'.

The group says it wants Senator Philip Ozouf to 'be removed or resign' from his post.

The planned demonstration coincides with the first States sitting of the year.
