Hastings town centre remains closed as army bomb disposal experts prepare to deal with a suspicious package today (December 11).
Anna Podkalicka sent us these pictures of the police presence in the town and the cordon in place in Hastings.
She also sent us a picture of a helicopter flying over Hastings but it did not land and it is unclear whether its presence was connected to the ongoing incident.
A reporter at the scene said at 1.15pm a member of the explosive ordnance disposal team appeared to be getting ready to deal with the suspicious package.
