Politicians from across the Channel Islands are asking for more to be done to stop abuse from members of the public.

Guernsey Deputy Carl Meerveld says someone drove a car at him, while Jersey Deputies Kirsten Morel and Rowland Huelin revealed they had received verbal abuse over the phone.

During our behind-the-scenes interview with Jersey's Chief Minister last summer, a member of the public was recorded swearing at Senator John Le Fondré after being unimpressed with the island's Covid restrictions.
