A man suspected of arson at a Brighton property has been released on police bail.

The 42-year-old was arrested by Sussex Police on Monday (1 August) after a fire at the property in Saunders Park View, Brighton.

They used buckets of water to try to douse the blaze in a ground floor bedroom of the property shortly before 5am.

The occupant was away at the time.

Detectives are carrying out a joint investigation with East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service to establish the cause of the fire.

The arson suspect was bailed until Sunday 18 September.
