Two more people have been arrested after a man was found dead at his home in East Sussex.

Officers found the 52-year-old man at a house in Coggins Mill Lane on Thursday. Police are still trying to trace his next of kin.

A 16-year-old boy and an 18-year-old man, both from Crowborough, have been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

On Saturday a boy aged 17 was arrested on suspicion of murder.

Sussex Police have been given a further 36 hours to question him and he remains in custody.

He is thought to have known the victim, a police spokesman said.

A 17-year-old girl from Eastbourne who was also arrested on Saturday on suspicion of assisting an offender also remains in custody.

A post-mortem examination showed the man died from multiple injuries.
