Police are appealing for witnesses after a man died after being shot in Hove last night.
Chief Inspector Helen West said: "This is a fast moving, developing inquiry to identify and trace the person or people responsible.
"We are actively seeking the offender, who we believe has left the area, and a number of police units including CID, Neighbourhood Policing, Road Policing and dog units are involved in this inquiry at this time.
"We are in the early stages of the investigation. We are talking with a number of witnesses and have secured the scene for forensic examination."
Anyone with information should call Sussex Police on 101 quoting Operation Euro serial or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Police have released this CCTV image of a man they would like to speak after a 61-year-old from Scotland was raped in Hove.
The woman reported that she was the victim of a rape in the early hours of Wednesday, January 9th.
She said she met a man in the Old Steine area of the city and went with him to a bar in St James's Street at around 10pm.
They then left in a taxi and went to a property in the Blatchington Road area of Hove where she was then assaulted.
Det Const Kerri Bartup said: "Investigations have been on-going since the victim reported the assault to officers a few days later. She has been very affected by the incident and we are hoping that by releasing the CCTV image that someone may recognise the man we wish to speak to.
"If you have any information that could help us with our enquiries please call 101 quoting serial 936 of 10/1 or alternatively leave an anonymous message with the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 111555."
It's one of the most controversial road safety schemes of its kind. Today a 20mph speed limit has been imposed on 500 streets in Brighton. Similiar schemes have been introduced in other towns and cities - but not on this scale. Video report from Malcolm Shaw.
Vandals have broken into thirty-six beach huts along the Kings Road Arches in Hove, Sussex.
Sussex Police officers on patrol found the damaged buildings at around 4.30am on the morning of 25 March 2013.
The authorities are trying to get in touch with all the owners whose properties have been vandalised. Detectives want to know if anything has been stolen. PCSO Marc Granger issued an appeal for information:
"We are keen to speak to anyone who was in the area between 1am and 1.30am and may have seen two boys shoulder charging the beach hut doors. We are particularly keen to hear from a cyclist with a dog in tow who is seen on CCTV to momentarily disturb one of the suspects.
"We will be continuing with local enquires and the viewing of CCTV from the area. Officers will be actively patrolling the area over the coming nights to prevent any further criminal damage to the huts.
"Several locks belonging to some of the huts were found scattered on the Pitch and Putt green - again we would like to hear from anyone who saw anyone throwing the broken locks onto the green.
"Anyone with information can telephone 101 quoting serial 0065 of 25/3. Alternatively witnesses can get in touch anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
Detectives have released a photograph of murdered homeless man Lea Williams and would like the person who took the photograph to get in touch. The photograph was part of a bundle found next to Lea's body on Monday 11 February in an archway overlooking the pitch and putt near Hove seafront.
Detective Inspector Wendy Burton from Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team said: "We would really like to speak to the person who took this photograph as they may have taken others or have information that could help with our enquiries."
