A fire at a historical property on Hove seafront is being treated as arson.

East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service were called to Medina House, in Kings Esplanade, at 17:50 GMT on Saturday, to reports of a fire on the first floor.

The property, which is near to the King Alfred pub, was built in 1894 as a Turkish bathhouse, but is currently disused.

Following an investigation by the fire service, it was concluded the fire was started deliberately.
