A FIRE broke out on scaffolding at a tower block.

Fire crews were called out to Essex Place in Brighton after the blaze broke out on first-floor scaffolding.

Firefighters from East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service arrived at the scene just before 9pm on Tuesday and got the fire under control.

Originally the fire was treated as suspicious and fire investigators were called in, but they found the fire had, in fact, started accidentally.
