Police and social workers in Brighton are concerned for the welfare of a 15-year old girl who has not been seen since she went missing on Tuesday, 5 August.

Mealey Eubank went missing from a foster-home where she is in care of the local authority, on Tuesday afternoon.

She is described as black, 5' 7", slim, with brown eyes and collar length afro-style brown hair. She was wearing a grey baseball-style top with black sleeves, and jeans. She took with her a bag of clothing.

Detective Inspector Lee Horner, from Sussex Police, said: 'There is no evidence of any suspicious circumstances, or that Mealey has come to any harm, but with every day and with the current lack of information we naturally become increasingly concerned.

'If you have seen Mealey, or know here she may be please contact us via or call us on 101 quoting serial 1588 of 5/8.'

Brighton and Sussex NHS Trust told to improve

Brighton and Sussex NHS Trust has been told it needs to improve.

A report by the Care Quality Commission indentified more needs to be done in areas of safety, responsiveness and leadership. The Trust acknowleged there was more to be done but said it was pleased at the level of progress over the last few months.

When we inspected the services run by Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust, we found that - across the board - staff were working hard to deliver compassionate care to people using trust services.

We found, however, that improvements were required in a number of areas.

I know that there is a significant change programme underway, and we saw that senior managers have a clear understanding of the challenges facing the trust.

While the new hospital buildings may in time resolve some of the infrastructure issues, these will not rectify the cultural issues that some staff told us about. The trust must focus on these issues as a matter of priority over the coming months.

We were very pleased at the enthusiasm and openness our inspection received from the trust and its staff. We will return in due course to check that the improvements we have requested have been made."

Brighton residents explore dementia

People in Brighton will have the opportunity to put their questions to the experts and find out a little more about dementia at the end of July as the Alzheimer's Society Dementia Community Roadshow comes to town.

The pioneering national tour will be stopping off at The Promenade, next to The Meeting Place Cafe, from Tuesday 29 July to Wednesday 30 July as it aims to increase local awareness and understanding of the condition which affects 3,032 people in Brighton and Hove.

It is open to people currently living with dementia, who are worried about a friend or relative's memory or who just have questions about the condition. No appointment is needed.

Having launched in 2011, the Roadshow has already made a big difference to the lives of people across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The current tour of the coast is also due to visit, among other places, Whitstable and Folkestone.

"With stores all over the East Midlands, we're extremely proud to help Alzheimer's Society raise awareness of dementia. The Roadshow is part of the legacy from our Charity of the Year partnership with the society and we hope that it contributes to building a better future for people with dementia."

– Michael Kissman, Community Director at Tesco
