Organisers of the official Welcome Ceremony for the South Africa Rugby World Cup Team taking place this morning (Sunday) have changed the venue because of the weather.

The ceremony was due to go ahead at the Bandstand on the seafront this morning from 11am.

But because of what organisers called the “gloomy weather forecast” it will now be at the Winter Garden.

The Sprinkboks are staying in Eastbourne and training here during their Rugby World Cup campaign.

We will have a full report and photos from the ceremony online later.
