Hundreds keeping fingers crossed for GCSE success

Teenagers across Eastbourne are picking up their GCSE results and hoping for the best.

Throughout the morning our reporter and photographer will be out and about at various schools to see how pupils have done and get reaction from teachers.

Last week the town recorded encouraging results in A-levels and will be hoping for similar success from todays.

Tomorrow’s Herald will include results from all local schools.
