    The South East Coast Ambulance Service is being forced to remove equipment from some of its ambulances, and limit the number of people who can travel in them. 

    It's because the vehicles are getting too heavy to be safe on the road. 

    Forty five out of a fleet of 300 will only be allowed to transport a maximum of two crew members and a patient and 18 of those ambulances have had kit removed.

    It happened in Arundel Garden on Wednesday 29 March at 11:15 BST.

    The trials and tribulations of being a commuter on Southern Rail has been turned into a satirical stage show. 

    Southern Fail - The Musical has been created using parts of The Treason Show, a comedy sketch series running in Brighton for 17 years. 

    Director and producer Mark Brailsford said he hoped the musical would hold a mirror up to the rail operator, forcing it to reflect on its conduct. 

    Quote Message: Satire doesn't really change the world, but it can add its little ten pence. It channels people's anger and shines a mirror up to the issue." from Mark Brailsford Director and producer

    It centres around two commuters, from different backgrounds, who become friends and team up to stand up to the firm. 

    The show is on 10 June at Shoreham Ropetackle and 24 June at Brighton's Sallis Benney Theatre. A crowdfunding page has been set up to take the show to other venues further along the rail line and into London.
