This week’s editions of both the Rye and Battle Observers are out on the news shelves with the latest news from the area.

Today’s front page of the Rye Observer leads with fresh hope for students as Rye Academy Trust has offered a ‘short-term solution’ to teenagers affected by the decision to suspend new intakes of students in years 10 and 12 at the studio school.

The full story about the trust’s decision can be found on page 4.

The Battle Observer’s front page leads on the efforts of hard-working volunteers who have completed another phase in sprucing the twitten between Battle’s Mount Street car park and the High Street.

Page 8 covers the whole story on their project.

Page 2 of both editions reveals the shocking news that the man who killed four people in an attack in Westminster had numerous Sussex connections, including links to Northiam and Eastbourne.

An elderly motorist who caused the death of an Udimore woman after his car crashed into a Costa Coffee shop on Christmas Eve 2015 has been also spared jail. The full story on the case is on page 3 of today’s paper.

The sun shone last weekend for Streets of Battle, the town’s annual street arts festival, which returned to Abbey Green and the High Street for a second year. Page 6 has a full story with pictures.

Elsewhere in the papers, the court results can be found on page 18. And on pages 20 and 21, readers can find a feature on the launch of a major appeal to raise £1 million to help pay for a new, state-of-the-art MRI scanner for the

Conquest Hospital.
