School at risk of closure to be given more time

A rural primary school under threat of closure looks set to be given more time to address a predicted budget deficit and attract new pupils.

East Sussex County Council said Fletching CE Primary School's position was still "vulnerable" but following a public consultation it would be recommending a consultation into its closure be stopped.

It said the school’s PTA has been actively fundraising to address a predicted budget deficit of £145,863 by 2021/22.

Meanwhile, its proposal on the closure of Broad Oak Primary in Heathfield looks set to be published.

It said the school has been under-subscribed for the last five years and nearly two thirds of its pupils were from outside the area.

The council said it "understood the enormity of the recommendation" but "not taking the decision would do nothing to alleviate the problems faced".

The recommendations will be considered by the council’s lead member for education, Bob Standley, at a meeting on Monday 23 December.

Penultimate result is in - one more to come

The second-to-last result of the 2019 general election has been called - a comfortable Conservative hold in Arundel & South Downs.

The final result outstanding, for St Ives, Cornwall, could be some time away after poor weather hampered helicopter flights to retrieve votes cast on the Isles of Scilly. That result could now come on Monday.

Reading East "too close to call"

Exit poll
BBC

Most of Berkshire's seats are set to stay with the same parties, apart from Reading East, which has been dubbed "too close to forecast" by the BBC's exit poll.

Labour's Matt Rodda gained the seat in 2017 from the Conservative's Rob Wilson, but could lose the seat to the Tories this time round.

The exit poll predicts Alok Sharma will hold his seat in Reading West, who won in 2017 with a majority of just 2,876 votes.

Ones to watch: Portsmouth South

Unusually, each of the three main parties have held this seat in the last decade.

It was a Lib Dem seat held by Mike Hancock who left the party in 2014 after controversy about the way he dealt with a vulnerable constituent. Flick Drummond won the seat in 2015 for the Conservatives but she was one of the casualties of Theresa May's snap election in 2017, when Labour's Stephen Morgan took the seat.

He's defending a majority of 1,554 with the Conservative's city council group leader Donna Jones and current Lib Dem leader of the council Gerald Vernon-Jackson vying for the seat.

House fire in Hove
BBC

A house fire in Hove was caused by a candle, East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service has said.

Four people were taken to hospital after the blaze on Leicester Villas near the junction with Portland Road at about 02:55 GMT on Tuesday.

The fire service said: "It is so important to remember to extinguish candles when nobody is in the room, or when going to bed to ensure they have been fully extinguished."

Station Manager Pup Upton, the fire investigation officer, said: “Candles may seem a harmless aesthetic addition to your home but if left unattended, they can cause a serious house fire, resulting in personal injury, property damage, or even worse."
