'Van surfer' in critical condition after apparent fall

A man is fighting for his life in hospital after police said he may have fallen while "surfing" on the roof of a van.

The 26-year-old is in a critical condition in hospital following the apparent fall from a moving Volkswagen Transporter, whose driver, 27, was arrested on Sunday evening.

A Sussex Police spokesman said: "The casualty may have been on the roof of the vehicle, possibly 'surfing', when he fell to the ground and was badly hurt, but police are still trying to establish the exact circumstances."
