PICTURES: Review of the Year 2015

The Sussex Express takes a look back at what made the news during 2015.

Residents enjoyed the annual traditions, such as Lewes Bonfire and the Patina Moving On Parade, and embraced the new in events including the inaugural LewesLight Festival and Lightbox exhibition.

The year saw the final flight of the much-loved Vulcan, as residents also said goodbye to long-serving MP Norman Baker as Maria Caulfield took the helm.

Protests and petitions against controversial developments also made headlines but while some were successful, such as those against installing solar panels on Tomkins Farm, others were not as plans for the North Street Quarter and Newhaven Port expansion were given the green light.
