Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

An East Grinstead shop which has been in the same family for four generations is to close.

Owner Geoff Wickenden says the sweet shop - which has been in the town for 103 years - is no longer a viable business.

Local schoolchildren have set up a Facebook campaign to keep the shop open, but it will close in September.
