A MAN died on Sunday (July 29) after falling 30ft from a crane.

Members of the public called the emergency services after seeing the man climbing up the crane at 5.23pm.

It is believed he had broken into the site in Marine Parade, near to where flats are currently being built.

The man fell before police had the chance to engage with him.

Sussex Police said the man, 43, of no fixed address, might have been living near the site as sleeping and camping equipment were found in bushes close to the Marine Gardens bowling green.

Police are not treating the incident as suspicious and the matter has been referred to the coroner’s officer.
