Sea water has flooded the foundations of Jersey's Horizon development.

The site will see 280 luxury flats built on the reclaimed land by the States quango, the Jersey Development Company.

Environmentalists say the high tide which filled the site could potentially flush contaminated water back into the harbour, potentially impacting sea life.

Jersey Development Company say they are monitoring the water in Elizabeth Marina each month to ensure the quality does not deteriorate while construction work takes place.
