EASTBOURNE MP Caroline Ansell has asked the Liberal Democrat-run borough council to act quicker over the cost of living crisis.

She said the council should “use its cost-of-living emergency support fund to move more quickly to reach local people.”

She added: “This local emergency fund was announced to much fanfare in May but the main decisions on how to use it have still yet to be made.”

We wait to hear from the council when it will be spent.
