Food banks across Sussex are handing out record numbers of emergency food parcels.

Over 9000 were handed out last year in Chichester, and there was a 64-percent increase in April this year compared to last.

Elsewhere, New figures from the Trussell Trust say the number of parcels handed out in Eastbourne has doubled since 2019.

In Wealden, it's quadrupled to 16,000 parcels a year.
