South Downs National Park is designated

The area includes the Seven Sisters chalk cliffs near Eastbourne

The South Downs became England’s newest national park at midnight.

The area, which covers more than 600 sq miles of countryside in Sussex and Hampshire, is England’s tenth national park.

A national park authority has been established which will have increased planning powers and the ability to target resources.

The designation will also mean the area will be eligible for extra funding from central government.
