A main road into Brighton has reopened after fire crews finished putting out a blaze at a hostel.

    Third fire in a hostel in the city since September, Seafield Road, Grand Parade and Percival Terrace. How long will it be before we have fatalities in Brighton and Hove. With Little and No Support available, these are the consequences. We have babies in this building!
