Police are investigating a collision in which a man sadly died.
Jack Brandon, 22, from Hassocks was struck by a vehicle which failed to stop at the scene.
His next-of-kin have been informed and are receiving support from specially-trained officers.
The incident occurred on the B2112 New Road, between Ditchling and Clayton in the early hours of Sunday (3 July). Anyone who saw what happened or captured any relevant dash cam footage from the area around that time is urged to email [email protected] quoting Operation Kempston.
Specifically, officers are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen a white vehicle with damage to its headlight and missing its nearside (passenger) wing mirror, and also any garages that have been asked to repair such damage since yesterday.
