A MAN is in police custody after an explosion at a bar.

The men’s toilets at The Shore bar, in Dane Road, Seaford were blown up last night.

Police were called just before 9.30pm initially to reports of a 'bomb'. It was established a firework had been set off in one of the cubicles and there was extensive damage.

A 35-year-old man from Seaford, arrested on suspicion of criminal damage, is still in custody, a police spokesman said.
