Officers say they are concerned for him.

Investigation into cause of Adur bridge damage

Damaged glass panels on the Adur ferry bridge

Vandals have caused thousands of pounds of damage to a footbridge across the River Adur - or have they?

Police and bridge owners West Sussex County Council are investigating the latest spate of damage to glass panels on the £10m Adur Ferry Bridge, which links Shoreham town centre with the beach.

The council says four panels, which cost about £1,000 each to repair, have been damaged in recent days.

Police are investigating reports of criminal damage by a group of youths, but the council wants to carry out tests to establish whether there was a recurrence of previous defects in the glass, which have been responsible for a number of previous similar incidents.

Investigations into a similar occurrence in 2014 established that impurities in the glass had caused some of the panels to shatter.

And a council spokesman said at least some of eight panels found damaged in January this year were the result of similar imperfections.

But the spokesman said the council would also be studying CCTV footage in case of other causes.

A Sussex Police spokesman said: "Officers attended and an area search was carried out. However, there was no trace of the suspects and there are currently no further lines of inquiry."

Man arrested after cyclist dies in collision near Bexhill

A man has been arrested in connection with the death of a 53-year-old cyclist who was killed in a collision with a car near Bexhill.

The cyclist, who police said was "local", died at the scene on the A2690 Combe Valley Way at about 06:20 BST on Sunday.

A 34-year-old man from Bexhill was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and causing death by driving without due care while unfit through drink or drugs.

He has been bailed until 23 June.

Sussex Police want to hear from witnesses to the collision or from anyone who saw the cyclist or a blue Vauxhall Astra in the area shortly beforehand.
