EASTBOURNE MP Caroline Ansell praises our residents for keeping the infection rate low.

She said: “The country has now moved into its three-tier system this week to tackle the spread of Coronavirus.

Here in Eastbourne we are at medium – the lowest level.

I would like to thank everyone in our town and East Sussex, the NHS, the local resilience forum, the police and social care providers and our schools and businesses for all they have done to keep the infection rate low and everyone playing their part is how we’ll come through this. “
