Our A&E SOS campaign, which aims to safeguard vital hospital services, has reached Whitehall after a box containing thousands of your signatures was handed into the Department of Health.

The final number of signatures totalled 23,075 and last Friday they were delivered to Jeremy Hunt’s office in the centre of London.

Meanwhile, Shoreham archer Bryony Pitman is hoping to seal a spot in the senior World Championships in Copenhagen later this year.

The Worthing club archer will be hoping this year proves to be her busiest and most successful yet as she aims to win a spot in the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

We also look at how our local MPs voted in favour of a law to permit the creation of babies from three people.

In an historic Parliamentary vote last week, 382 MPs voted in favour of laws to allow IVF babies to be created using biological material from three different people to help prevent serious genetic diseases.

There is also a round-up of all the latest people to be sentenced in court across Sussex.

More on these stories can be found in the Herald, out today (Thursday, February 12), for 80p.

There is also our usual range of news, sports, entertainment, people news, columnists and much, much more.
