Thursday 4 May: vote, vote, vote…

Local people opposing the planned Bexhill Hastings Link Road are not complying with leader of East Sussex County Council Peter Jones’ suggestion that they ‘shove off!’.  Groups and individuals approaching the issue from a number of different perspectives continue to use their skills and ingenuity to campaign peacefully on behalf of what they value, writes HOT’s Zelly Restorick.
