A driver was killed when his van plummeted nearly 100ft (30m) off a cliff in Brighton.

Sussex Police received calls just after 06:30 BST on Sunday telling them a van had "gone over the cliff" from Marine Drive.

The silver Vauxhall was found badly damaged on Undercliff Walk. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

The force said it was investigating and has appealed to drivers with dash-cam footage to come forward.
