EASTBOURNE’S LibDem hopeful Josh Babarinde has expressed concerns about train delays for the next week or so.

He said: “I’m very concerned that Eastbourne-Victoria trains are suspended until 10th January due to staff illness.

Wishing all those staff a speedy Covid recovery, and in the meantime, I’ve written to Southern Railway urging them to provide:

We need certainty to Eastbourne commuters, who face significant disruption and fair compensation to those whose journeys are affected.

Our local economy and livelihoods deserve a swift, robust and fair response from Southern.

I will provide an update as soon as I get one.”
