Two men suffer brain injuries in Brighton

Two men, one with life-threatening injuries, have been admitted to a neurological centre after separate incidents in Brighton.

One man was assaulted in London Road at about 23:15 GMT on Thursday and was treated for a brain haemorrhage.

A 20-year-old man from Lancing was taken to hospital from East Street at about 04:35 on Friday.

He was diagnosed with an extensive inter-cranial bleed and his condition is described as life-threatening.

In the first incident a caller to Sussex Police reported a man being punched in the face by a group of six or seven people outside the Costa Coffee on London Road.

The victim, a 20-year-old man from Goring, then ran off.

He was taken to hospital for treatment to a small cut, but was transferred to Hurstwood Park Hospital in Haywards Heath with a suspected brain haemorrhage. Police said he was expected to make a full recovery.

The man from Lancing had been picked up by ambulance outside the Lola Lo club in East Street when he started complaining of head pain.

He was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital before being transferred to Haywards Heath.

Sussex Police said it was also unclear how he had received his life-threatening injury.
