Alderney's new Harbour Master says he aims to provide a "robust and efficient service" as he steps into the top job.

Adam Rose was formerly the island's Deputy Harbour Master and will begin his new role on 1 January 2023.

Mr Rose, who has worked for the harbour since 2005 says: "It’s my aim to provide a robust and efficient service which will continue to serve the island in a safe and reliable manner."

The appointment comes after the resignation of the previous Harbour Master, John Taylor.
