The head of the Jersey Hospitality Association says the decision to delay the reintroduction of stand-up drinking in the island is a "serious threat" to the industry's future.

It was supposed to come back in Stage 6 - set for mid May - but has now been pushed back until Stage 7 is introduced on 14 June.

Simon Soar, says there has been a lack of clear communication from Ministers, causing an industry already "on its knees" to face further setbacks.

He is also calling for a review of the rules around the wearing of masks indoors.
