States seeks casino alternatives
Guernsey States is asking for alternative proposals after plans for a casino in the island collapsed.

Tom Scott, chairman of CI Traders and the businessman behind the project at the Saint Pierre Park Hotel, believes it is no longer viable.

It follows stalemate over the terms of the licence after Mr Scott's request to scale down plans from 25m to about 15m was rejected.

Now the States will look at whether there is still demand for a casino.
