Brighton is still partly Green

The Greens retained their single seat at Westminster, with Caroline Lucas holding on in the party's stronghold of Brighton Pavilion.

Speaking at the declaration, she outlined what their priorities will be in the new parliament.

Labour candidate steps down

The Labour candidate for Brighton Pavilion has stepped down, BBC Sussex can reveal.

Michelle Thew is the CEO of animal welfare charity Cruelty Free International. I understand it became clear that her commitments there were not compatible with standing as a candidate in the general election.

In 2015, BBC Newsbeat spoke to Solomon Curtis as one of the youngest Parliamentary candidates.

She is replaced by Solomon Curtis, a 20-year-old student at the University of Sussex. He stood in 2015 in Wealden, losing to Conservative Nus Ghani.

He joins Tory Emma Warnham and independent candidate Nick Yeomans in challenging the incumbent - Caroline Lucas of the Green Party.

Is Sussex's 'progressive alliance' really under strain already?

Nobody's political powder is very dry in Lewes anymore

On Wednesday night, the Lib Dems announced they would not put up a candidate in Brighton Pavilion at June's General Election. The aim? To help Green MP Caroline Lucas keep her seat.

Many local Lib Dems were expecting the Greens to return the favour by standing aside in Lewes. So imagine their surprise when the Greens announced a Lewes candidate, Katie Hawks.

Lib Dem candidate Kelly-Marie Blundell says the news is "disappointing" - but let's be clear. The Greens haven't made a decision about whether Ms Hawks will appear on the ballot paper.

They say that Brighton Pavilion was a nice gesture, but if the Lib Dems really want a clear run at Lewes, they'll need to stand aside somewhere like the Isle of Wight, as well.

Standing aside isn't something political parties do lightly - and forming 'progressive alliances' could prove tricky if it isn't clear who's stepping aside in exchange for what.
