DETECTIVES investigating a suspected hit and run have charged a man in connection with the offence.

Police were called to Brighton seafront in the early hours of December 1 after the incident.

Marine Parade was closed for three days while officers scoured the area for clues.

Suel Delgado, 20, from Crawley, died from his injuries in hospital and an 18-year-old man and a 22-year-old man were also injured.

Now Iftekhar Khondaker, 34, has been charged on suspicion of murder and two counts of attempted murder.

He will appear at Brighton Magistrates' Court tomorrow.

Meanwhile flowers and tributes to Suel Delgado were left outside the Amsterdam Hotel.

The talented footballer died in hospital from his injuries.

Friends and loved ones told Suel to “keep shining” and said they would keep him in their hearts.

Suel attended the Thomas Bennett Community College in Crawley, and played for football teams in Sussex who described their shock at the news.

One message on flowers from Rhi Rhi described an 11-year friendship.

The message said: “To my best friend and brother, thank you for the amazing and beautiful memories. Shine bright baby, keep shining.

“I will never forget you, I love you forever and always.”

One friend who described Suel as their left and their right hand said: “Word’s can’t even describe how much you will be missed.”

Meanwhile friends Faye, Adrian, Tayah and Isla wrote: “My lovely Suel. RIP beautiful. Things will never be the same. You really were too good for this earth. Love you.”

An 18-year-old and a 22-year-old were also injured in the incident and needed hospital treatment.

A vehicle was later found abandoned in Middle Street, Brighton.

The force said: "Police investigating an incident in Marine Parade, Brighton, on Sunday 1 December last year, which resulted in the death of a 20-year-old Crawley man and serious injury to two other men, all of whom were in collision with a BMW X6 car, have charged a 34-year-old man with murder and two counts of attempted murder.

"Iftekhar Khondaker, of Caithness Road, Mitcham, who is currently in custody, is due to appear before Brighton magistrates on Friday (28 February)."
