This dramatic photo shows the car that was completely destroyed when a wall at the back of the Premier Inn collapsed on Monday (February 8).
Bricks fell from the back of the hotel, in Terminus Road, as Storm Imogen raged through Eastbourne.
Emergency services cordoned off the road while the area was made safe and guests were evacuated. They have been found rooms at other hotels in Eastbourne.
The bosses of Premier Inn have promised a ‘thorough investigation’.
