The Bexhill Observer hits the news stands today (Friday) and it is jam-packed with the latest news from across the town.

Among the news offerings this week is the story of a take away which is facing a penalty of up to £60,000 following a visit from Immigration Enforcement officers; a much-loved branch of a local bakery chain has shut suddenly; a seven-year-old girl is set to walk 1,000 miles to raise money to help save the rainforest; and six couples have come together to reopen a popular local restaurant.

Christopher Hunnisett, who was jailed for life in 2012 for the brutal murder of Bexhill man Peter Bick, claims her rights as a transgender woman are being violated after performing an horrific ‘home-made sex change’ in prison.

And this week we also carry a two-page interview with Dr Adrian Bull, the chief executive of the local NHS Trust. He speaks to health reporter Laura Cooke about the recent CQC inspection report, the trust’s financial struggles and his vision for the future of local healthcare.

Camilla Lake brings you all the latest entertainment news from across Hastings and Rother and sports reporter Simon Newstead brings you all the latest sporting news and fixtures, including a look ahead to tomorrow’s matches which will see Bexhill United and Little Common host the top two teams in their divisions.

The Bexhill Observer is available from all good newsagents.
