Channel Island company’s plan for Europe’s biggest nuclear shelter

ITV’s occupation drama Enemy at the Door had its national debut, Sark was designated a dark sky island, making it one of the best places in the world to watch the night sky with the naked eye, and ferry passengers were stranded when rough seas made it too dangerous to dock.

The lighthouse keepers at Hanois were cut off for so long food started running short, a Jersey beggar got more than he bargained for, and a Channel Islands company announced plans for the biggest nuclear shelter in Europe.

All this and more in the Channel Islands history this week.
