  • Good morning, and welcome to The Argus website. A relatively quiet morning compared to the interesting times in Brighton of late. The weather's okayish, the trains aren't terrible, and there's no signs of any bombs on the horizon today.

More on the Old Shoreham Road closure - it's now likely to be closed for two or three days. 


More sad news from the storm - a turtle and a puffin are the latest wildlife to be washed up on our beaches. 

We didn't put the turtle photo on as it's a little grim, but it is on Twitter if you really want to take a look.


We've all seen Banksy's Kissing Coppers on the side of the Prince Albert in Trafalgar Street, right?

Well perhaps wrong. The existing policemen are actually replicas - the original was shipped to the US in 2011. 

Today, it goes on auction in Miami for an estimated £300k £420k.  


This story is surprisingly popular today - anger over a seven-hour extension to the times a new Nando's store can do deliveries in Hove on Saturdays

Looking at what people are saying on Twitter though, I suspect it's the news that Nando's are opening a store there in the first place . . .


I think I spoke too soon about the trains. While it's nothing like yesterday's chaos, it looks like flooding has knocked out signals near Gatwick this morning. 


It's a very George Clooney-flavoured news day today. First of all, here's a tale of a toyshop raid which has been likened to his film Ocean's Eleven. 


And wonderful Lewes great-grandmother Anne Olivier Bell has spilled the beans on her trip to the premiere of Clooney's new film, The Monuments Men. Which A-lister do you think she got to sit on her lap? 


Some interesting news about though - our most-read today is this story about millionaire Martin Webb's £2k donation to Labour - which is all the more interesting as his former business partner is Simon Kirby, the Conservative Brighton Kemptown MP. 

But despite first appearances, he has told the The Argus that the donation is nothing personal - and in fact he still meets Mr Kirby for beers.
