A man who injected a homeless woman with heroin and then left her in public toilets in Brighton where she was found dead has been jailed.

Timothy Smythe, from Hove, pleaded guilty to manslaughter at an earlier hearing at Lewes Crown Court.

The court heard the body of Faye Issac, 39, was found by a cleaner in The Colonnade toilets in Madeira Drive in November last year.

The 52-year-old was jailed for 12 years.

Smythe had injected her with drugs, taken her purse and left her in the toilets, Sussex Police said after the hearing.

Det Supt Ian Pollard said Smythe was "a callous individual" who had left Ms Issac for dead.
