The county council hopes to reopen Eastbourne library next Tuesday.

A water leak forced it to close its doors on Friday (April 8).

An East Sussex County Council spokesman said: “We’ve had a water leak at Eastbourne Library which means that for safety reasons we’ve had to close the library.

“It will remain closed on Saturday and we will be reassessing the situation on Monday once the leak has been repaired and any other necessary work carried out.

“We’ll keep people posted and in the meantime people can use other nearby libraries including those at Hampden Park, Langney, Willingdon and Polegate.”

The council now says: “We hope to reopen it on Tuesday 12 April and will update this message when we have more information.”
