A man was found dead in unexplained circumstances in a Brighton flat last weekend.

The 30-something man was discovered by paramedics at the flat in Arnold Street in Hanover on Sunday morning.

Police said his death is currently being treated as unexplained.

A neighbour, who wished to remain nameless, said officers were going door to door asking if anyone had seen or heard anything.

He said: “It’s really sad. Ambulances and police were in attendance at 48 Arnold St, asking neighbours if we heard anything

“I think they were a couple that had moved from a student house a couple of houses up, when the housemates went their separate ways.”

A police spokeswoman said: “Sussex Police were called by the ambulance service to a flat in Arnold Street, Brighton, at 9.14am on Sunday (26 April).

“Sadly a man in his 30s discovered inside the flat was pronounced dead. The death is being treated as unexplained at this time.”

The death has been referred to the coroner’s office.

    Has Hanover adopted the Hove Actually soundbite? Surely it should be Hanover and Elm Grove or Elm Grove even?

      I don’t see why? I grew up in Hanover and even in the 80s and 90s it was referred to as Hanover. In fact I have never heard anyone use “Hanover and Elm Grove” in my life.

    I grew up in the Elm Grove area 60 years ago and we definitely didnt call it Hanover.Are they going to change the name of the School?By the way Hanover and Elm Grove is the Ward name for the area.It is like St James’s Street not being in Kemp Town but real estate agents like to list it so.
