EASTBOURNE MP Caroline Ansell says disgraced Health Secretary Matt Hancock was right to quit.

She said: “It was right that Matt Hancock resigned as health secretary after breaking social distancing rules as his position was untenable.

I certainly welcome Sajid Javid as his successor.

Sajid is no stranger to Eastbourne – having been here on several occasions.

He is an experienced minister and I am sure he’ll do a good job.”
