A man has died after his van plummeted over cliffs by Brighton Marina this morning.

Police are now appealing for dashcam or CCTV footage which could shed any light on how the silver Vauxhall van went over.

Emergency services were called shortly after 6.30am today to reports of the accident, close to Roedean School.

Emergency services attended, but sadly the driver died at the scene. His next of kin have been informed.

Part of the undercliff is expected to remain closed on Sunday while the van is recovered and investigation work is completed at the scene.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or who may have CCTC or dashcam footage is asked to email or call 101 quoting Operation Shaftesbury.
