CAROLINE ANSELL: 999 services, Sunday trading and the refugee crisis
I would like to pass my thanks onto the local emergency services who work so hard all through the year to keep us safe, and but for whom we would have nowhere to turn in the toughest of circumstances. This week is a good case in point. The storms at the beginning of the week battered the entire south coast with winds locally reaching 70mph. We had trees blown down, dangerous driving conditions, delayed trains - in Hastings the helter skelter blew over, and in Eastbourne, incredibly a wall of the Premier Inn collapsed. On that last incident, I’m glad to say that no-one was injured, but it could have been worse. That story is covered elsewhere in the paper, but I just wanted to acknowledge and thank the firefighters, police, ambulance, and hospital staff who do so much for us when there is nowhere else to turn.
