Since the latest lockdown started my wife and I have been regularly taking exercise at Beachy Head.

Of late there has been an alarming number of ‘boy racers’ driving at breakneck speeds on the Beachy Head road west of the pub, using it as a race track. The afternoon of Sunday March 7, was a typical case in point where they actually took over two car parks, were socialising in large numbers and racing ‘hot hatches’ etc on the public highway. Without wishing to be a killjoy, apart from the Covid implications of illegal social gatherings,I believe it is only a matter of time before someone is seriously injured.
