The latest iPhone model goes on sale tomorrow, and the Brighton Apple store inside the shopping centre opens at 8am.

By 9pm, about 25 people were outside the shopping centre, which opens at 7am, an hour before the Apple store itself.

And by 7am, their numbers had swelled to about 300, with the queue snaking back past WH Smith.

However, Brighton iPhone enthusiasts have nothing on those in London, who started queueing on Wednesday last week.

Today, a homeless charity announced it was auctioning off its space in the queue to raise money and awareness.

    But give it another week and you’ll get it without queuing for a day

    Wow! Didn’t realise there were this many people in Brighton with more money than sense.
