Brighton attack victim seriously hurt in 'targeted assault'

A man suffered "potentially life-threatening" head injuries during what police think was a planning attack outside a Brighton nightclub.

The man in his 20s was assaulted near The Haunt, in Pool Valley, at about 03:50 GMT.

Sussex Police said he was being treated at Hurstwood Park Neurosciences Centre in Haywards Heath.

Two Brighton men, aged 21 and 23, have been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm.

Detectives said it was not a random attack.

The area outside the nightclub in Pool Valley has been sealed off while the assault is being investigated.

Passengers using the nearby coach station have been warned to expect some disruption to services.
