A police cordon has been put in place on one of Brighton’s busiest roads this morning after a man was found unconscious there.
Emergency services were called at 7.10am after the man was discovered in North Street, at the junction with Meeting House Lane. He was taken to hospital where he remains in a critical condition.
A large police cordon is in place on a section of the pavement by North Street and is likely to remain in place for sometime. The road itself remains open to traffic.
