Plans to protect foreign students visiting East Sussex

Plans have been discussed to improve the safety of foreign students who visit East Sussex.

More than 60,000 students every year visit the south coast to study English at language schools.

Guidelines discussed by officials include ensuring security checks are carried out on host families.

Last November a man was jailed for killing 16-year-old Qatari student Mohammed al-Majed following a racist row in Hastings in 2008.

George Austin, 22, from south London, was convicted of manslaughter and jailed for four-and-a-half years.
