AN empty shop flooded in Eastbourne Town Centre yesterday afternoon (Tuesday).

Here’s Your Eastbourne Town Centre: “Thank you to East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service (ESFRS) for attending swiftly and helping out when a mixture of yesterday’s heavy rainwater and a blocked drainage pipe caused damage to a vacant shop.

After liaising with them, a drainage company, the council and the managing agents of the property, the site has now been cleared.”
