Health experts in the South East are spearheading a new drive to tackle the most widespread cancer affecting men. Prostate cancer kills one man every hour in UK. Every day, 100 new cases are diagnosed. And by 2030, the disease is predicted to be the most common cancer overall. Now, special workshops are being held for men who are fighting prostate cancer - and those who've beaten it. From Sussex, Malcolm Shaw reports.
Tough-guy Ross Kemp has been in town. He found fame - in the Eastend. And more recently has been visiting the world's most dangerous places - like Afghanistan. Today - he tackled Broadstairs. Derek Johnson reports.
A coroner has expressed concern over a bedside cot after a newborn baby from Haywards Heath was killed while she slept.
Seven-week-old Grace Roseman died while using a crib which could be joined onto her parents' bed.
She had manoeuvred herself over the edge of the Bednest - cutting off the supply of oxygen to her brain.
‘We are greatly saddened and extend our heartfelt condolences to Grace’s parents.
We are doubly upset to hear this news, since the concept behind Bednest’s design is first and foremost about baby health and safety and came originally from highly experienced neo-natal nurses.
It is not the case that the coroner has called the cot “dangerous” and asked for it to be withdrawn.
The coroner has highlighted that all safety guidelines for the correct use of the crib are laid out in the instruction manual, but due to a growing second-hand market for our Bednest cribs, these instruction manuals may not be passed on. This may be, sadly, what happened with Grace’s crib.
We are now considering displaying basic instructions on the side of the crib itself.'

Almost 500 Australians and New Zealanders joined their fellow passengers on the decks of Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth for a very special memorial service as the ship sailed the waters off the Gallipoli Peninsula this morning.
Marking Cunard’s long-standing association with Australian and New Zealand wartime campaigns, including Gallipoli, the emotional ceremony saw the ship’s crew and guests lay wreaths in the water in remembrance of the heroic soldiers who fought in the First World War campaign.
A two-metre high poppy wall floral tribute, shaped as ‘100’ to mark the Anzac centenary, formed the centrepiece for the ceremony. The wall was filled with 11,500 red poppies donated by Australians and New Zealanders during Queen Elizabeth’s calls to Auckland and Sydney as part of her current world cruise, with the flowers representing the number of Anzacs killed during the campaign.
Visitors to the poppy wall in Auckland and Sydney also wrote personal messages in a special remembrance book, with a selection of those read at this morning’s service. The book will be placed in the ship’s library where it will remain in memory of the heroes of Gallipoli.
