A section of a popular nature trail in East Sussex that was closed for eight months has re-opened.

Southern Water closed the Old Loom Mill section of the Cuckoo Trail, between Polegate and Hailsham to replace a sewer pipe.

The pipe burst last October leading to serious pollution of Shinewater Lake in Polegate.

Keith Jeffery, of Southern Water, thanked residents for "being so patient and understanding".
