It’s celestial Eastbourne this week, with a giant hornet, too (Eastbourne Herald readers’ pictures)

The magnificent Milky Way over Birling Gap, a midsummmer strawberry moon... and a giant hornet. Our selection of Herald reader’s photos is slightly unusual this week - in a good way of course - with a shot of the pier basking in the sunshine to even things up.

If you would like to share a photograph with us, please email it as a JPEG to eastbourne.herald@jpimedia.co.uk telling us a little about the picture and the type of camera/phone with which it was taken.

Tracey Rawson snapped this giant hornet after she trapped it in her kitchen. She said, "I'm in no way one to harm an animal  but the Hoover was the only way to remove it from my kitchen. It's still alive and now free, hopefully far far away from me." SUS-190307-114859001
