    Reporter, BBC South East Today

    Kent Police have issued a warning to dog owners to keep their pets under control in the run up to the lambing season, after sheep were attacked at a farm in Sandwich Bay.

    Farmers in Sussex are suffering a higher number of sheep deaths caused by dogs than anywhere else in Britain.

    The National Farmers Union says the cost of sheep-worrying claims in the South East rose by 80% last year.   

  15. Expanding schools further is 'simply not practical'

    Brighton and Hove City Council have released a statement following the launch of a petition after almost 150 children didn't receive any of their three preferred secondary schools in their area. 

    Quote Message: We have always tried our best to ensure parents are offered a place in their catchment school if they apply for one. However, we have never been able to guarantee this. Dorothy Stringer and Varndean have both taken their full number of students this year. They are operating at the limits of their capacity, and expanding them further is simply not practical.
    
          Brighton and Hove City Council have released a statement following the launch of a petition after almost 150 children didn't receive any of their three preferred secondary schools in their area.
    Quote Message: Parents who are unhappy with the school they have been offered can if they so wish lodge an appeal. The panel that hears appeals is independent of the council. It is not bound by the council's admission priorities, and its decisions are binding on the council and on schools. Parents who aren't offered a catchment area place will automatically be entered in the reallocation pool for their first preference school if a place become available.
    Quote Message: The council has a legal duty to have enough school places available across the city as a whole for all residents who request one. As in all previous years we have fulfilled this legal duty. from Dan Chapman The chair of Brighton & Hove City Council's children, young people and skills committee
