  2. Albion chief responds to Southern apology

    Seagulls chief executive Paul Barber has publicly responded to an apology from Southern rail over Friday night's chaos at Falmer station.

    Thousands of Albion and Aston Villa fans were left stranded with "no warning" after a handful of services were cancelled shortly before the final whistle.   

    Today the club received an email from Southern's passenger services director, Angie Doll.

    Quote Message: Quite frankly, given the issues we have faced over such a long period, I am absolutely astonished that this is the first time you have contacted me directly. I am even more astounded that your chief executive still hasn’t once bothered to call, email, or write to me – or to any of my colleagues - despite many, many months of poor service culminating in Friday evening’s shocking events."
    Paul Barber
    Quote Message: It also worries me greatly that your organisation only now seems to have grasped quite how serious Friday evening's events actually were - and indeed could have been. What happened not only massively inconvenienced and caused great stress for many thousands of our fans, and those of Aston Villa, more importantly, it also seriously endangered their safety." from Paul Barber Brighton and Hove Albion chief executive

  8. The problem of beach litter

    The South East is the third worst region in the country for beach litter, according to a new report.

    The Marine Conservation Society looked at how the number of plastic bags on the country's beaches had changed, since the introduction of the 5p bag charge.

    It's seen a drastic reduction in beach litter nationally, which they say is good news for marine wildlife.

    But the South East still has more than 700 items of litter for every 100m of beach.

  9. Fatal crash: Car was on wrong side of road

    Sam Kay

    An inquest has been held into the deaths of a Sussex man and three other young people killed when their car crashed head-on into another vehicle. 

    Sam Kay, 26, from Crawley was a passenger in the car which crashed on the A40 in Oxfordshire in May. 

    The hearing was told the four friends were on their way back from a festival at the time.

    The coroner concluded it wasn't possible to say exactly why their car was on the wrong side of the road, but either driver fatigue or driver distraction seemed most likely potential causes.
