Members of the public are being asked to stay away from Lewes Bonfire celebrations this year after coronavirus restrictions on social gatherings came into force on 14 September.

The event usually attracts thousands of people to the town, causing overcrowding, the organisers said.

"This year there are serious concerns that there will be additional public health issues due to the pandemic," a spokesman said.

"Bonfire Societies are already changing or cancelling their plans which means the public will not be able to see the usual celebrations."
