A man is believed to have been seriously injured in an armed brawl on a pier.

A “large-scale” group of armed people were involved in a fight on the Grade II listed Bognor pier yesterday evening.

A man has been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm while police offices search for a man they believe was seriously injured in the alleged attack.

“We want to locate the victim to ensure they are getting the right treatment.

“This is thought to be an isolated incident between people who were known to each other and does not pose a threat to the wider community.
