Police officers and forensic archaeologists searching two Brighton and Hove properties will be taking a break this weekend.

Detective Chief Inspector Nick Sloan, who is leading the search, said: “Owners Brighton Housing Trust and the tenants at 152-154 Marine Parade, Brighton, have been very patient and co-operative throughout the disruption caused by the police activity.

“We will resume work on Monday (26 July) at 8am, allowing the residents some respite from the search, on what will be the second weekend of the operation.

“Police scene guards will remain at the location throughout the weekend.”

The search is part of a continuing investigation into convicted murderer Peter Tobin who lived at this address and at 67 Station Road, Portslade, in the late 1980s.

Police have concluded their search in Portslade and are satisfied that the property is not linked to any criminality in relation to Peter Tobin.

Anyone who has questions or concerns may speak to the scene guards or contact Sussex Police on 0845 6070999.
