South East Coast Ambulance Service was called to a report of a man in his 60s in need of urgent medical attention just after noon.

A spokesman said the man, who had lost consciousness and been injured, needed to be resuscitated.

He was taken to Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton in a life-threatening condition at 1.45pm.
