A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a 52-year-old, who had been found injured at a house in West Sussex, died.

The victim was discovered an hour after officers first called at Ingleside Crescent, Lancing, on Monday following reports of a disturbance.

He was found with a serious head injury when they returned for a welfare check at about 21:15 BST, Sussex Police said.

A man, 44, from Shoreham, was arrested and remains in custody, police said.

The injured man was taken to hospital in Brighton, where he died.

Det Insp Mark Cullimore added: "We want to hear from anyone who was in the area on Monday evening and may have seen someone acting suspiciously or [seen] something out of the ordinary."
