A major redevelopment of Hastings old town and beach front could bring £500m into the town, according to plans revealed this morning.

Hastings Harbour Quarter Limited, a company set up specifically for the project by developers and architects, has approached the council with the scheme.

It's being given a cautious welcome by Hastings Borough Council, which will discuss it on 11 September, but leader Peter Chowney says he wants at least 25% of the properties to be affordable.

BBC Local Live

Some big names are out of parliament - Alex Salmond and Nick Clegg lost their seats.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd did manage to hold on as MP of Hastings.

Live debate

Mark Stuart is a senior tutor in politics at the University of Nottingham, he said: "Amber Rudd lost her father recently, what courage to go through this whole process to appear live on television.

"I think probably that TV debate when she stood in for the Prime Minister saved her seat."
