Man arrested following Hove flat fire

A man has been arrested on suspicion of arson following a fire at a flat in Hove.

Sussex Police said officers were called to a property at Osborne Villas, Hove, after the occupier reported a break in at about 2030 BST on Tuesday.

As the occupier waited outside, smoke was seen coming from the flat and East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service were called to deal with the blaze.

Officers said a 53-year-old Eastbourne man was arrested in Hove later.
