A 45-year-old man has suffered serious injuries after acollision with a car in Peacehaven.
The man was walking past Lampons estate agents along South Coast Road junction with Roderick Avenue when he was hit by a car at 10pm last night. He is being treated at the Royal Sussex County Hospital.
An inquest will be held today on a soldier who died in hospital two days after being caught in a bomb blast in Afghanistan. Private Daniel Prior died at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham in March last year after being wounded while serving with 2nd Battalion, The Parachute Regiment.
This bright, inspiring and able paratrooper knew the risks of war more than almost anyone. Every one of the thousand troops in this Battle Group will mourn this irreplaceable loss."
