Floral tributes have been left at the scene of a hit-and-run during which a 24-year-old man died. 

The man, from the area, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash which happened in Western Road, near Diplocks Walk, Hailsham, at around 11pm on Saturday.

On Monday, flowers and notes had been left at the scene. 

One heartfelt note attached to a bunch of flowers reads: "Had the privilege of working with and getting to know you. Such a beautiful soul. You will be sadly missed."

Another card said: "So sorry for what you're going through."

Sussex Police confirmed that the man's next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.

Two men who handed themselves in overnight on Sunday have now been arrested on suspicion of murder in relation to the incident. 

The men - a 32-year-old from Horam and a 26-year-old of no fixed address - remain in custody at this time.
