A number of arrests have been made after a man was airlifted to hospital and the latest news on the incident can be found in today’s paper.

In other news, the East Sussex breast screening service is urgently appealing for help finding an alternative site to start screening women living in Bexhill, St Leonards and Hastings.

Plans for a major housing development off The Ridge have also been refused.
