    i360

    Final checks on the British Airways 360 in Brighton are being carried out before an announcement about its reopening is made tomorrow monring.

    The chairman of the i360, David Marks, said the inital stoppage on Thursday was due to a "load imbalance" and on Sunday it stopped when "sensors became loose".

    He said: “We have a highly qualified engineering team on site during all operating hours and we are confident that these same issues will not happen again.

    “We would like to assure our customers that their safety and comfort is our number one priority and apologise again for any inconvenience caused.”

  6. Cricket: Close of play

    Adrian Harms

    BBC Sussex sports reporter

    So where do you start? A wicket with the first and last ball of the day, nearly 400 runs and 17 wickets, and all played under beautiful cloudless skies.

    Sussex will resume tomorrow needing another 259 to win with nine wickets remaining.

    There were two stand-out performances with the ball: Miguel Cummins taking 7-84 for Worcester, and Steve Magoffin taking ten wickets in the match in a wonderful performance to make it 59 wickets in all this season.

    Tomorrow is set fair for a terrific day's cricket, and it's likely to be the last this season at Hove.

  14. ICYMI: Surrogate baby may be 'left in India'

    The Sussex grandparents of a baby born to a surrogate mother in India say they are beside themselves with worry that delays in issuing her passport means her parents may have to return home without her. 

    Pam and John Newman, from Horsted Keynes near Haywards Heath, say they fear their son and daughter-in-law's temporary visa - which has already been extended - may run out before baby Lily gets her passport.
