Our seafront is already poorly lit

IN THESE straightened times I’m sure most of us support cost- cutting measures, particularly where council spending is concerned.

But turning off street lights on the seafront in Eastbourne could endanger both motorists and pedestrians alike.

As anyone who has driven along Grand Parade during the hours of darkness will tell you, the zebra crossings are extremely poorly lit.

Belisha beacons are not enough. There should be at least two spotlights per crossing pointing downwards to illuminate people using the walkway. Surely East Sussex County Council could spend a small portion of the money they have made out of the universally loathed parking charges on a few lights which could save lives.
