There could only be one contender for the front page for today’s Hastings Observer – the 950th anniversary for 1066 has finally arrived!

A round-up of all of this weekend’s events and pictures from Hastings Week fill the paper on the biggest day in the town’s calendar.

Other stories include the WWII bomb that was discovered off the coast, a tribute to the cyclist who died on the seafront plus the effect of this week’s rail strike.

We have Amber Rudd MP’s column, a heartwarming feature on a war veteran reuniting with the man who saved his life and the 1066 Community Award.

Hastings United’s agony in the FA Cup is the back page story as well as the latest rugby, snooker and hockey reports.
