What Happened July 6th? Brighton News Roundup

All the days headlines, in one place

The middle of the week is more often than not what feels like the longest day. If you’ve been working hard and not had a chance to catch up on the days headlines, fear not. Here are all the talking points from today in Brighton and Hove. 

A mother and two daughters who were reported missing earlier this week have been found today. Rachel Bouchaib, 37, and her two daughters had not been seen since Saturday but it was confirmed earlier today that the trio had been found safe.

 

What would have been a major development to Brighton’s seafront is being put on hold, reports claimed earlier. The relocation of the Brighton Centre and the expansion of Churchill Square would have been a £540M regeneration scheme and revitalized Brighton’s Centre, but fears of the economy in the wake of Brexit has meant that the scheme is postponed.

Is Churchill Square starting to look a bit dated?

Train bosses have today apologized for the poor general service Southern have provided in recent weeks. They also claimed that the revised timetable would be in operation for an estimated four weeks. Speaking to Juice, Angie Doll – the creator of the new timetable – said passengers should expect to see changes to the service over the coming months. 

Protesters at the station

“Where’s my train?” Angry commuters at a recent protest. The new timetable aims to reduce cancellations.

Brighton and Hove Albion are on the verge of signing a new defender. Tyler Forbes from Fleetwood Town would be Brighton’s fourth signing of the season, however it is not expected that he will play first team football with the Seagulls.
