People in England will no longer have to maintain social distancing from 19 July.

The requirement to maintain 1m-plus social distancing will end and there will be no capacity limits at sporting and entertainment venues.

And while figures continue to go up, Covid hospital admissions in Eastbourne remain incredibly low.

Latest data is for the East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust, which covers the DGH, Conquest and Bexhill Hospital.

It shows just 7 Covid patients in hospital across the Trust, with two on ventilators.

Only one new person was admitted yesterday.
