Jersey Battle of Flowers cancelled

This year's Jersey Battle of Flowers and Moonlight Parade have been cancelled.

The annual events, due to take place in August, are the latest to be called off due to the current uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic.

It is the only occasion outside of war time that Battle will not go ahead.

Organisers say this announcement comes with "deep regret", but the safety of the community must come first.

Anyone who has purchased tickets for the 2020 summer parades have the option of a full refund or transferring their tickets towards the 2021 event.
