Eastbourne Police has closed its town centre front office for the Easter Bank Holiday weekend.

This may surprise many of us.

The police say: “Please note the front office will be closed over the weekend from Friday-Monday, and will reopen as usual on Tuesday.

Should you need to contact us or have conditions to report, please use the yellow phone outside the Police station, or contact us online or 101.

Remember we are here 24/7, 365, and you can always contact us, call 101 or report online for all non-emergencies, and call 999 in an emergency/crime in action/threat to life.

Stay safe and enjoy your Easter Weekend.”
