Police closed a busy road in Hove this morning (Friday 7 December) with a siege above a pizza takeaway continuing as school home time approaches.

Armed officers were in attendance as traffic backed up in surrounding streets.

Sussex Police said: “Police have attended an address in Portland Road in Hove at around 8am on Friday morning after concerns for a man in a property.

“The man has thrown items from the window and a section of the road has been closed while officers try and speak to him.
