Police investigating the unexplained death of a Haywards Heath man have eliminated a man from their enquiries after he came forward.

Emergency services were called to block of flats in Cambridge Road, Hove, at 3.45am on Sunday (August 4), where a 39-year-old man from Haywards Heath had been found with injuries in the communal hallway, said police.

Officers said he was treated by paramedics but sadly died at the scene.
