  2. Road calming plans for Heathfield

    Stuart Maisner

    BBC Live reporter

    People in Heathfield are being asked for their views on plans for a traffic calming scheme aimed at cutting vehicle speed and improving safety.

    East Sussex Highways has launched a consultation on the plan for Ghyll Road, which would complement an existing scheme in the neighbouring Tilsmore area.

    It would see speed cushions installed at regular intervals, a raised junction at the intersection of Ghyll Road and Geers Wood, upgraded street lights and new signage.

    The scheme would cost around £150,000, to be funded by money set aside by East Sussex County Council for local transport improvements.

    You can take part in a consultation here.

    A school in Brighton has launched an appeal to help fund a state-of-the-art sports centre.

    Katie Price said in a statement: "I loved my sport when I was at Patcham. Running was my big thing and I was really proud to represent the school. As a mum I know how important physical exercise is for kids and I reckon the kids at Patcham High deserve the best facilities they can get.

    "I still have friends who live in and around Patcham and I think the new sports hall and the all-weather pitches will be brilliant for them and their families and anyone else in the area who's into sport."
