Detectives said that his death was unexplained but not thought to be suspicious although they are keen to talk to potential witnesses.

Sussex Police said: “Are you able to help with what happened to a man who died on Brighton seafront?

“Emergency services were called to King’s Road opposite the Old Ship Hotel where a man had collapsed.

“The man was treated at the scene before being taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital where he sadly died.”

Detective Inspector Jo Grantham said: “We have identified the man as a 39-year-old from Guildford who was visiting Brighton.

“We believe he left a night club in the King’s Road Arches around 2.20am and last contact was made with him at around 3.30am.

“His death is being treated as unexplained at this time but not believed to be suspicious.

“However, we are hoping to speak to anyone who might have seen him near the Old Ship Hotel or on the Upper Promenade on the southern side of the road between 2.15am and 7.10am on Sunday (12 February).

“He is a black man, around 6ft to 6ft 2in, with a shaved head and trimmed beard, wearing grey jeans, beige boots, a mustard coloured shirt with a jacket worn over this.”

Anyone who saw anything that could help with the investigation is asked to contact Sussex Police online at quoting 0266 12/02/2017.
