Storm Angus has kept fire crews busy across Eastbourne overnight.

Just after 2am, they were called to a patio door banging in Monarch House in Royal Parade.

At 4.15am crews were sent to Moy Avenue, to a fire alarm going off, before being called to Willingdon Primary School just before 7am. The tin roof had blown off and firefighters assessed the situation, made the area safe and say there is now no danger to the public there.

Just after 7am, crews from Herstmonceux were sent to Bexhill to deal with a dangerous window.

At 8.44am, Herstmonceux crews returned to Bexhill to recover a marquee which had blown away and landed on top of a car.

At 8.49am, Eastbourne crews were sent to Seaside, to deal with sharp glass falling from a window.

Eastbourne Police dealt with several crashes overnight, including one where the driver hit the accelerator instead of the brakes, the wet roads making driving more hazardous than usual.

Southern have been running their trains at reduced speeds owing to the strong winds and heavy rain overnight. The restrictions have now been lifted, but they warn there could be delays of up to an hour on some services.

Stagecoach Buses say their services are not affected by the weather and are running as normal.

Eastbourne's Street Market has been cancelled today owing to the strong winds and rain.

The Met Office has an amber warning in place for strong winds until 11am, with yellow warnings for both wind and rain standing until lunchtime. According to their forecast, Eastbourne could see some sunshine this afternoon, before the rain returns this evening.
