Chief Minister: Remembering the loss at Pier Road, one month on

Tuesday 10 January 2023


Today we mark one month since the tragic incident at Haut du Mont on Pier Road, which led to the deaths of 10 people.

It devastated the families and friends of those who lost their lives, as well as displacing a number of islanders from their homes in the surrounding area.

This incident shocked islanders and people around the world. My thoughts remain with everyone impacted.

It is through difficult times, such as these, that we see the generosity and strength of community spirit that is a hallmark of our island. We have been overwhelmed by the way that businesses, individuals and community groups have come together to help, in whatever way they can.

Our efforts as a Government remain on the recovery work and providing all of the assistance we can to those that have been displaced, and to the families of the victims.

The police and health and safety investigation continues, and the States of Jersey Police are working closely with those agencies involved, including Andium Homes, to make sure that everyone impacted by this tragedy has the support that they need.

I want to offer my sincere thanks to everyone who has provided their support to those touched by this tragedy, ensuring they get the help they need during this difficult time.

Chief Minister, Deputy Kristina Moore
