Firefighters repairing the post office roof

The crews used the fire engine turntable ladder to reach and repair the high roof of the building at Devonshire Square.

This comes after Storm Angus hit Sussex this morning with powerful winds reaching up to 80mph.

Ravenside retail park was forced to close today due to a roof being damaged in the strong winds.

The Met Office released an amber weather warning yesterday for the storm, with severe weather from 2am to 11am today.

It warned that there will be likely disruption to transport and power supplies and damage to buildings.
