(for our overseas readers: the Channel Islands are a group of islands that hold allegiance to the British Crown. They are off the north coast of France. Jersey is one of these, a Crown Dependency and a self governing parliamentary democracy. There are three airports in these islands, Jersey, Guernsey and Alderney)
