In today’s Observer we lead with the tragic story of the death of 11-year-old Harley Simpson following a road collision.

The youngster, who attended The St Leonards Academy, was also a player for Hastings & Bexhill RFC’s under-12 squad.

Page four leads with the story about the town’s bathing waters being rated ‘excellent’.

A campaign has also been launched to turn Hastings into a 20mph, meaning roads in residential areas would have a speed limit reduction. The full story is on page seven.

Our two-page feature explores the challenges police are facing in 1066 Country and the rest of Sussex as officer numbers and budgets are cut.
