The fight broke out at about 12:20 GMT on Saturday.

Police said the victims had chest and facial injures. One 50-year-old man remains in hospital.

Ch Insp Jane Derrick, of Sussex Police, said: "We believe a fight broke out after a group of people, who were at the resort together, were ejected from a nightclub on the site.
