Two men have been arrested over the death of a man who suffered serious head injuries after falling about 20ft (6m) at a Brighton construction site.

David Clarke, 55, fell while working on buildings next to Stanmer House in Stanmer Park on 30 September and died in hospital on 28 October.

A 44-year-old man from Hove and 67-year-old Brighton businessman Mike Holland were both arrested on suspicion of manslaughter by gross negligence.

They have been released on police bail.

Mr Holland is due to answer bail on 28 March and the 44-year-old man was bailed until 30 March.

Mr Clarke's death is the subject of an investigation by Sussex Police and the Health and Safety Executive, a police spokesman said.
