The Bexhill Observer hits the newstands today (Friday) and here is what awaits you in this week’s edition.

We lead on the story about a mother who was horrified to discover her toddler daughter on the edge of a lake after sneaking out of a children’s playpark through some broken gates. The council has apologised and has taken action.

There is a bad news as a major bank announces its plan to close its town centre branch.

Meanwhile over in Sidley, a fire has caused considerable damage to a long-established firm - but staff at R&R Kitchens told the Observer the business will come back ‘stronger than ever’ following the blaze.

Unfortunately there is more trouble ahead for rail passengers, as one union rejects a new deal with train operator Southern and while members of the RMT are preparing for yet more strike action tomorrow (Saturday). And just for good measure, there are some engineering works scheduled for the Easter weekend which could pose a problem to those travelling to London. See pages 7 and 9 for the latest.

This week’s special report looks at how sexual offences are reported and investigated in Sussex, and how victims are supported. See pages 20 and 21 for the full feature.

Once again our comprehensive entertainment guide, Wow 24/7, brings you all the latest entertainment news from across Rother and Hastings, including the Observer’s top ten things to do this week.

On the back pages, sports reporter Simon Newstead brings you up to date with all the fixtures and sports news, including the latest from Little Common FC, Egerton Park Indoor Bowls Club, Bexhill United, Bexhill Town and more.
