  2. Cricket: Terrific entertainment at Hove

    Adrian Harms

    BBC Sussex sports reporter

    Terrific entertainment at Hove with 147 runs scored and four wickets taken, a genuinely quick bowler roaring in down the hill, and an exciting young all rounder showing a full array of shots. 

    It's been great stuff!

    Sussex v Worcs

    Worcestershire have their noses in front largely thanks to Miguel Cummins who has bowled with electric pace and has fully deserved his six wickets. 

    Jofra Archer has yet again shown he is a very special talent following up his seven wickets last week with an effortless innings of 46, and sharing a partnership of 97 with Chris Jordan who remains 45 not out at lunch.

    Bring on the afternoon session!

    Claire Cottingham

    BBC Live reporter

    You can't blame Will Bayley for getting slightly excited after winning gold at the Paralympic games in Rio. 

    The Groombridge Paralympian was so overjoyed he jumped on the table, which didn't please the umpire, who handed him a yellow card.

    So how did Will react? By hugging her, of course...

    Here are some of the pupils - and teachers - who do their learning away from the formal classroom. Read the feature here.

  10. Trade Union Congress: What today holds

    Ben Weisz

    Political reporter, BBC Sussex

    How many politicians can say they’ve headlined a Billy Bragg gig? This evening, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will be living many a musician’s dream, as he addresses a rally of supporters on the fringe of the Trade Union Congress in Brighton. 

    Elsewhere, delegates will discuss a variety of workplace matters, from bosses who spy on their staff to the future of the NHS.

    And in the city with the country’s only Green MP, there will be discussion of what the Paris Agreement on Climate Change means for jobs, and how trade unions should respond.

  11. 'It was a huge relief I'd achieved my dream'

    Claire Cottingham

  14. What does the MP boundary review mean for the South East?

    Helen Catt

    Political editor, BBC South East

    The Boundary Review is a bit like a game of electoral musical chairs and this time it's Mid Kent and Faversham's Helen Whately who's left, quite literally, without a seat.

    While the Conservatives will see their majorities shored up by the changes in many constituencies, losing this one will be a blow as it's one they can usually rely on winning.

    Caroline Lucas

    Big changes in Thanet won't work in their favour either. South Thanet, which Craig Mackinlay won by a whisker in 2015, is set to become the new constituency of Thanet East.

    It'll lose Tory-leaning Sandwich (to neighbouring Dover) and gain Margate, which comes with a much higher level of support for Labour and UKIP.

    The Liberal Democrats though may well be eyeing up Maidstone, now without the Weald, as well as the newly created Brighton East and Newhaven.

    Craig Mackinlay

    And what of the country's only Green MP, Caroline Lucas? Well, Woodingdean is being joined to much of her existing constituency of Brighton Pavilion to become Brighton North. She'll also inherit the heavily Labour area of Moulsecoomb, both of which could make a Green win there in 2020 that bit harder.

    The thing about these proposals though is that they are just that: proposals. There'll be plenty of scope for them to change and, since they'll need to pass a vote of MPs, it's fairly likely they will.

  15. Rail Minister 'determined to resolve' Southern issues

  17. FA Vase match abandoned after 'spectator punched player'

    An FA Vase first-round qualifying match was abandoned on Saturday after a spectator reportedly punched a Worthing United player as he was substituted.

    The incident occurred 70 minutes into Worthing's home tie against Peacehaven at the Robert Albon Memorial Ground.

    Sussex Police say a 24-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault, and has been bailed until 3 October pending further enquiries. Read the story here.
