A retail park has been forced to close today (Sunday) because of public safety concerns after Storm Angus.

Police and East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service are at the scene.

The Met Office has released an amber weather warning for the storm, which has seen powerful winds reaching speeds of up to 80mph today.
