"It's a bit annoying to be honest." Surely something of an understatement from one Seaford-bound commuter I chatted to at Lewes nearly a month ago, during the last rail strike.

The local MP Maria Caulfield says she'll be keeping her eye on Southern to make sure they deliver.

A tough morning for Leicestershire after Sussex decided to bowl first under cloudy skies and a greenish looking pitch, which has made for favourable bowling conditions.
Steve Magoffin took a wicket with the first ball of the match having Paul Horton caught behind, but thereafter the Sussex bowling failed to exploit the conditions as Dexter and Robson completed a solid 50 partnership.
However Robson was bowled by one that kept horribly low, and the ever reliable Magoffin trapped Leics skipper Cosgrove for four runs.
Neil Dexter has shown sound technique, mixing watchful defence with some classic cover drives, and he may well benefit if the forecast sun arrives and batting gets easier.
Sussex Police has launched pilot schemes where members of the public work alongside paid staff to allow officers to concentrate on core duties.

Four companies contracted by Coperforma - the non-emergency ambulance service - have told NHS managers they're unable to "operate effectively".
This extensive letter outlines ambulance bosses significant concerns with the way Coperforma are running the patient transport service in Sussex.

The letter says the situation has reached "critical levels now" and that they are "disgusted" at the position Coperforma has put them in.
They raise a number of serious financial concerns and are threatening "legal proceedings" in ten days time or face an "immediate reduction in the provision of services".
