Police are searching for a girl who has been reported missing after failing to return home from a party in Sussex on Saturday 14 October.

Francesca Laker, 15, left her home in Kemptown, Brighton, saying she was going to a party in Falmer. She returned home briefly around 22:30 BST before leaving again.

It's thought that she is wearing black jeans, a grey bomber jacket and carrying a black shoulder bag.

Do school figures add up?

Bob Dale

BBC Live reporter

Schools across the South East have been told how their funding will be calculated by the government.

The new formula, announced today to replace that originally published in July, now includes a minimum amount for each pupil, on average £3,500 in primary schools and £4,800 in secondaries.

For East Sussex the Department for Education says those numbers are likely to be £3,723 and £4,941 per pupil.

In West Sussex it's £3,677 and £4,756 a head.

The Department for Education says the figures for Kent will be £3,724 and £4,781 per pupil.

In the South East's two unitary authorities, Brighton and Hove will receive £3,858 and £5,026 for each primary and secondary child respectively, while Medway will receive £3,807 and £5,019 a head.

Education secretary Justine Greening says overall an extra £1.3bn has been found for schools, but opposition politicians say this isn't enough.

The majority of my schools are getting 0.9% increase. Most commentators say education inflation is at least 2%. There is no point having a fair funding formula if there's not enough money in the pot.'

'Anxiety' among Tories in Brighton Kemptown

Election 2017

The BBC's Julian Worricker says there's "anxiety" among the Conservatives about Brighton Kemptown, which was held by Tory Simon Kirby with a majority of just 690 votes.

In Brighton Pavilion, the seat that was held by the Greens' Caroline Lucas, there are signs of a progressive alliance having come into play, he says.

In Hove, Labour is reasonably hopeful it will be able to hold on to that seat, he adds.

The picture in Sussex: Analysis from our political reporter

Ben Weisz

Political reporter, BBC Sussex

You might think Sussex is the Tories’ to lose. They currently hold all but two of the seats here.

Will confusion over the Tories’ adult social care plans cost them in elderly Eastbourne, a top Lib Dem target? And while they’re at it, might the Lib Dems take Lewes?

Simon Kirby

Meanwhile, Labour is hoping for an upset in Brighton Kemptown where government minister Simon Kirby is sitting on a small majority.

All three Brighton & Hove seats were visited by the Prime Minister early in the campaign.

The Tories are taking those threats seriously.

Kristy Adams

Don’t think they’re not on the offensive, though. Kristy Adams’ campaign has seen several government ministers descend on Hove.

A Tory landslide could cause an upset in Brighton Pavilion too. Though that’s much less likely.

It’d be a good night for Labour if they held on to Hove and took Kemptown.

If Crawley or Hastings turned from blue to red it would be something of a political earthquake.

Possible, but unlikely.
