Developers 'threaten old sites'
A Channel Island archaeologist claims important historical sites could be under threat from development through a lack of effective protection.

Heather Sebire, from the Guernsey Museum, says Guernsey and Jersey are lagging behind the UK and other countries in protecting its sites.

She says laws and practices are changing slowly.

However she fears that the new process of preserving historical sites is not as effective as it could be.
