AND now for the bad news………….

Covid infection rates in Eastbourne ‘have risen quite dramatically’ according to Eastbourne MP Caroline Ansell.

She said: “I have been told this week that infection rates in Eastbourne have risen quite dramatically.

“Just a few weeks ago, it was around 20 per 100,000 people but now it is more than 100 infections per 100,000 with evidence of community transmission occurring too.

“This means we still have a much lower infection rate than other parts of the country and I remain confident the lockdown will lower it.”
