Two military Chinook helicopters were out in the skies above Eastbourne last night (Monday).

Several people reported seeing the two Chinooks circling above Hampden Park, Willingdon and the District General Hospital.

It appears one of the helicopters was taking part in a night time training landing exercise by the RAF with an observer helicopter filming the landing from the air.
