Dramatic video has surfaced of two brothers from Sussex fighting in Syria. Their younger brother, eighteen-year-old Abdullah Deghayes, was shot dead six weeks ago in a street battle. It is believed he was fighting alongside a group linked to al-Qaeda.

The men's father says they went to Syria to fight a "dictator" and describes his youngest son as a "martyr". He is pleading with his surviving sons to come home. But if they do, they face the possibility of being arrested.

Saltdean Lido in Brighton is opening its doors for the very first time in years this weekend.

People will get the chance to view the only Grade 2 listed lido in the country before it is closed for a £5 million refurbishment.

The refurbishment will see the lido closed fully for 12-18 months while work takes place.

The site will re-open in 2016 and is hoped to be restored back to its former glory with heated water for the pool, new meeting room space, an all year round cafe and bar as well as a new gym and outdoor recreation area, including beach volleyball.

Saltdean lido is saved

Residents who fought for two years to stop a businessman building homes on the site of the Saltdean Lido in Brighton are now beginning their campaign to raise three million pounds to take on the building themselves.

The lease for the 1930s Lido was handed back to Brighton and Hove City Council yesterday by former leaseholder Dennis Audley. Campaigners are overjoyed.
