A kitchen fire in a high rise building left a man needing smoke inhalation treatment.

Firefighters from Preston Circus and Roedean in Brighton, and Hove, were called to the flat on the 7th floor of a block in Hereford Street, Kemp Town, at about 3.30pm yesterday.

They used breathing gear to tackle the fire and a thermal imaging camera to ensure it was fully out.

A fan was then used to clear the smoke.
