Motorists travelling to Bexhill this morning (Tuesday, November 22) should be aware that severe winds have led to a diversion being put in place along the seafront.

High winds have caused a street light by the De La Warr Pavilion to become unstable.

The lamppost is leaning forward towards the road.
