    Thousands of gay men convicted of sexual offences that have now been abolished, have been posthumously pardoned.

    It follows the case of World War Two hero Alan Turing, from St Leonards, who helped crack the enigma code, but was convicted of gross indecency in 1952 for having sex with a man.

    But some campaigners want the legislation to go further.

    Fang the cat

    A cat has died after being shot with an airgun.

    Twelve-year-old Fang was taken to a vet after returning to his owner in Haywards Heath looking unwell.

    An X-ray revealed a pellet in his abdomen which had perforated his intestine seven times.

    Fang was transferred to a specialist vet for surgery but died a few days later.

    Quote Message: At first I hoped they could take the pellet out and Fang would be OK, but that small pellet had caused so much terrible internal damage that he was not able to recover. We are devastated at losing him and horrified that anyone could do such a horrible thing. from Joceline Colvert Fang's owner

    Rohan Ince

    Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Rohan Ince has joined League One side Swindon Town on loan until the end of the season.

    He passed a medical at the County Ground earlier today, and will be available for Swindon's local derby against Oxford United on Sunday lunchtime.

    Manager Chris Hughton said: "Rohan has again found his chances limited this season, so this move gives him the opportunity to play football under a coach he knows well.

    "Despite the lack of opportunities, he has been really professional, worked hard in training, and this loan is a good one for all three parties, the player and both clubs."

    The former Chelsea youngster has been limited to just seven appearances in cup competitions this season, featuring in the EFL Cup, Checkatrade Trophy and FA Cup.

    Ince has made 90 senior appearances for Albion, since being handed his debut by Oscar Garcia in 2013. He also played ten games for Fulham during a loan spell at Craven Cottage last season.

  10. Road rage leads to crash

    Bob Dale

    BBC Live reporter

    A driver has been banned for two years and sentenced to 200 hours community service, for an act of road rage which caused a high-speed crash on the A27 near Shoreham.

    Lee Allwright, 29, of West Street, Storrington, aggressively overtook a BMW, prompting the driver to immediately flash his lights.

    Allwright braked hard, causing the BMW driver to stop in the middle lane, where it was rammed by an empty bus.

    The whole incident, on 27 November 2015, was captured on the bus CCTV camera.

  11. Investigation after blood found outside shop

    Police are appealing for witnesses after blood was found outside the Co-Op store in Test Road, Sompting.

    Officers were called at around 07:15 GMT today by a member of the public who saw the blood on the cashpoint and pavement.

  12. Renewed appeal in fatal hit-and-run investigation

    Scene of a hit-and-run in Brighton

    Police investigating the death of a pensioner in a hit-and-run in Brighton three weeks ago are appealing for the driver of a light-coloured hatchback to come forward.

    Sergeant Richard Hornsey from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: "It's possible that the driver or other occupants of this car make this journey regularly and the three week anniversary might prompt their recollection.

    "The car is a light-coloured five-door hatchback, possibly a silver or grey Renault, that was travelling down Edward Street at about 21:55 GMT on Tuesday, January 10. It had to stop suddenly in the junction with Grand Parade and Old Steine.

    "I would stress that the driver is not a suspect, but they may have important information that could assist our investigation and I would urge them to email collision.appeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call 101 quoting Operation Beresford."

    Jonos 'John' Sasvari, 78, of Little Preston Street, Brighton, died after being hit by a car at the junction between Old Steine and St James's Street.

    A 33-year-old man and a 35-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, drink driving, failing to stop for police and failing to report an accident. They have both been bailed until February 27 while investigations continue.
