In today’s Rye Observer, our top story is Samantha Jefferies’ victory at the High Court in London after a judge ruled she could keep frozen embryos she and her late husband Clive created.

Clive died two years ago and his widow said it was her ‘right’ to be a mum.

We also carry the story on how a man was found guilty yesterday (Thursday, September 29) of carrying out a violent burglary at the Northiam home of champion clay pigeon shooter George Digweed.

A review is also under way into whether lifeguards should be deployed at Camber Sands after six people died over the summer.

Our centre spread covers the second week of Rye Arts Festival.
