    It's part of our series looking at issues in the South East leading up to the general election. #SEVote

    Steve Sidwell

    Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Steve Sidwell has penned a new one-year deal with the club.

    The 34-year-old joined Albion for a second spell in January 2016, initially signing on loan from Stoke City.

    He made the move permanent last summer, and was a key part of the club's promotion-winning Championship side last season.

    Manager Chris Hughton said: "Steve has been a key member of the squad over the past 18 months. He thoroughly deserves this new deal and I am delighted that he is extending his stay at the club.

    "Our fans know his qualities well, and his experience, particularly at Premier League level, will be important for us. He is an excellent pro and that experience will be vital for us next season."

  17. Bodger and Badger creator Andy Cunningham dies after cancer battle

    Bodget and Badger star Andy Cunningham

    Entertainer Andy Cunningham, best known as the creator and star of children's TV show Bodger And Badger, has died aged 67.

    Cunningham played handyman Simon Bodger in the series and voiced his companion, a beret-wearing talking badger with a love for mashed potatoes.

    He died of cancer at the Royal Sussex County Hospital on Monday.

    The show ran on the BBC from 1989 to 1999.

    His sister Tessa Cunningham said: "Andy lived to be loved and to make people laugh - starting with me, his little sister.

    "He had a quicksilver brain, a rebellious attitude, boundless compassion particularly for the underdog, unstinting levels of generosity and, of course, a passion for mashed potato."

  18. Armed officers deployed at Sussex festival

    Armed police officers are being deployed to this weekend's Wildlife music festival at Shoreham airport in the wake of the recent terror attacks.

    They're being asked to avoid bringing bags to the event to help speed up access.
