EASTBOURNE business bosses say homeless people who came here from Brighton must go back.

Your Eastbourne BID is a business led, business funded organisation. It’s purpose is to improve and enhance Eastbourne Town Centre.

In its latest Covid 19 update, it says: “BID made clear that the rough sleeping cohort from Brighton need to move back to Brighton.

“We would like charitable groups not to provide tents as they are left in the town centre. Provision is being made at present to store goods for a week.”

The issue was raised in Parliament by Caroline Ansell recently.

Police too locally expressed concern.
