MYSTERY symbols that appeared in a city centre over the weekend have got residents in a flap.

To mark the release of the new Hunger Games books ahead of the third film of the series hitting cinemas in November, mockingjay symbols have been appearing all over Brighton.

The company behind the symbols is inviting fans to keep looking for the clues and following the direction of the arrows to the next stage, which lead to a chance of winning premiere tickets.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part One is released in cinemas on November 20.
