Two people are in hospital with serious head injuries after being hit by a car during a fight in Brighton.

Police said three men were struck by the car as a large group of people fought with weapons in Marine Parade at about 05:20 GMT.

A "fast moving investigation" had established the attack was not terror-related, Sussex Police said.

The car was found abandoned and a man, 32, has been arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm.
