    I’ve spent many years and had great fun down on that part of brighton beach and I’ve worked at the beach break for a couple of summers. Its the maddest little chippy i know and probably the busiest one on the seafront. I’m sorry that this had to happen and that it wont be the same again and more importantly all the guys down there alive and well

    We were just sitting on the beach when a small about of smoke appeared, we thought it was just a BBQ at first, then the smoke got darker and thicker and more of it started to spread, then many flames started to appear, every1 stood up and started screaming then the fire people arrived and thankfully every1 was okay!
