A body of a man found washed up on Brighton beach is not being treated as suspicious.

The body has now been identified by police as that of an 84-year-old from Brighton but a post mortem and formal identification is yet to take place.

Sussex Police said they are not treating the discovery as suspicious.

The body was discovered in the surf yesterday at 9.25am by a member of the public.

Specialist police and coastguard teams moved in to recover it before high tide and a section of the beach near Duke's Mound was cordoned off.

Note to Argus - there is no such word as "cordonned" which you have been using since this sad story broke. "Broke" is also a word which applies to your spellchecker which you should be using as a substitute for a fundamental lack of education.
On a more sympathetic note - RIP to the old fellow.

It's really sad. I hope his family manage to come to terms with such terrible news.

As for The Argus, it's really become a piece of low grade cr@p. They used this poor man's death to profiteer, when they stuck an advert in front of a video they made about it. They do that all the time though.
