Guernsey Police are investigating an accusation of corruption in Alderney in relation to the building of a new underwater electric cable that will link up the UK to France.

The FAB link, as it is more commonly known, will connect British and French national electricity grids and could be constructed in Channel Island waters.

In response to the accusation, the States of Alderney says it is aware of the investigation.

FAB Link Limited themselves have said the accusation of corruption is 'wholly inaccurate and entirely unfounded.'

The FAB Project was put on hold in 2017 with the French energy regulator saying it needed more clarity on Brexit, before any construction work could start.

According to the FAB website, work is scheduled to start next year.
