Murder, mystery and football were among the topics of a film project undertaken by local students.

The scheme, a partnership between Lewes Library and Sussex Downs Lewes College, saw BTEC Film and TV production students produce one-minute films with a Sussex theme.

Students researched and prepared films at the library which hosted a cinema-style premiere attended by students, families, and guests.

Films included an investigation by Kate Brown, 17, from Crowborough, who discovered that her family home is on the site of one of the county’s most notorious murders.

In 1926 Norman Thorne was executed for murdering his fiancée, Elsie Cameron, before dismembering and disposing of her body at the chicken farm he ran at the junction of Luxford Lane and Luxford Road, a case known as the Chicken Run Murder.
