After an appeal by our sister paper, the Eastbourne Herald, Lyndsey Diamond got in touch to say she had also seen the baby face on the seafront in Bexhill.

Lyndsey said, “I have seen the same baby face in Bexhill seafront about two weeks ago.”

She sent in photos which match the original baby face and said she left the sculpture where she found it.

Lyndsey said, “I took two pictures of the baby face and left it where it was. I have no idea how it appeared on the Eastbourne seafront.”
