The air ambulance and two paramedic cars were dispatched and landed nearby at Field Place. The man was treated at the scene and then taken to hospital by road, according to the South East Coast Ambulance Service (SECAMB).

He suffered ‘potentially serious injuries’ and was rushed to Royal Sussex County Hospital.

The British Transport Police spokesman said that because he did not fall on the tracks, railway lines have remained open.

Sussex Police also attended the scene and are currently investigating the incident.

They said: “The circumstances surrouding the man’s fall are being looked into and we are not able to say exactly what happened at this time.”
