Actor Liam Neeson's nephew is fighting for his life in hospital after falling from the top of a phone box.

Ronan Sexton, 31, had been enjoying a night out with friends in Brighton when he climbed on top of the phone box at around 4 a.m on Sunday morning. He suffered a serious head injury after falling around 20ft.

He was admitted to a local hospital but then transferred to Hurstwood Park neurological centre in Haywards Heath, West Sussex, in a critical condition.

His mother Bernadette - the sister of Taken and Stars Wars actor Mr Neeson - has reportedly been at her son's hospital bedside.

The accident is the latest upset for Mr Neeson whose actress wife, Natasha Richardson, died in March 2009 at the age of 45 from head injuries following a ski accident in Canada.
