Campaigners fighting against plans for a Hastings to Bexhill link road will take their case to the High Court in London later today. They are hoping to reverse a decision not to grant them the right to appeal against the one hundred million pound scheme.

While traders say building the new road is vital to improve business links between the two towns od Bexhill and Hastings, environmentalists disagree.
