This morning (Fri Dec 14), contractors are moving in to start tree felling in the area of the old railway near Adams farm. According to police who are present on the scene, East Sussex County Council owns the land as of midnight last night. Three vans of contractors and a police car have recently left the compound in Bexhill, with more to follow.
A number of people are there to try to stop the felling; more support is urgently needed.
