    Tim Peake donates £250,000 to The Prince's Trust

    Chichester's Tim Peake has donated £250,000 to the Prince's Trust as a result of sales through his book.

    The astronaut also confirmed that he will be releasing a new book in the autumn and once again, the royalties will be donated to The Prince’s Trust.

    Quote Message: The work the Trust does, helping disadvantaged young people move into education, work or training, is something I believe is vital. I have met some of the young people supported by the Trust and I have seen first-hand what a difference the charity makes to their lives. It seemed natural to me that the proceeds I would get from my book would go towards helping such a fantastic cause." from Tim Peake European Space Agency Astronaut

  3. Brighton and Hove Albion v Derby - analysis

    Johnny Cantor

    BBC Sussex commentator

    The victory over Rotherham will go some way to restoring confidence after two defeats, but the game at home to Derby represents a bigger challenge.

    Playing on a Friday, the Seagulls can put more pressure on third-placed Huddersfield with a win, but will need to find their 'A' game to beat an unpredictable Rams side.

    Ravaged by injuries to four key defenders, Chris Hughton will want his team to add to their record of 18 clean sheets in the league and has a big decision to make wide left with so many options at his disposal.

    An inadequately stocked toilet roll cupboard and a lack of headphones meant hundreds of holidaymakers were delayed for more than five hours.

    British Airways has apologised to passengers on its flight from Gatwick to Barbados, which was supposed to leave on Sunday evening but eventually took off in the early hours of Monday.

    The delay meant the return flight to Gatwick was also held up.

    The airline now faces a £290,000 compensation bill.

    It's a big night at the Amex as Brighton and Hove Albion are looking to strengthen their promotion hopes against Derby County.

    Striker Chuba Akpom, who's had an injured knee, could feature after resuming training.

    Shane Duffy is sidelined for six weeks with a broken metatarsal, with centre-back Uwe Huenemeier set to deputise again. Fellow defenders Gaetan Bong and Sebastian Pocognoli are still out.

    New Brighton signing Vegard Forren  is "not up to speed" according to manager Chris Hughton and his fitness will be assessed in the coming days.

    Manager Chris Hughton told BBC Sussex: "Our home form has always been key to the position we've had in this division, particularly over the past couple of seasons in my time here.

    "We certainly put great importance on that, but we're in a division where the top end is pushing very hard at the moment. We have to anticipate that the teams in that group are not going to lose many games.

    "You have to have the mindset of winning your home games, but we also know we've got away games where we'll have to get victories as well."

    Kick-off is at 19:45 GMT. You can listen to the build up and the match on BBC Sussex here .
