An actor has vowed to carry on fighting to save a Grade II listed church which is under threat of demolition.

Former Coronation Street actor Brian Capron believes building 44 flats on the site of Holy Trinity Church, in Blatchington Road, Hove, would look out of place in the conservation area.

He also says it would reduce privacy and cause light and parking problems.

The church was decommissioned by the Diocese of Chichester and housing developer Hyde Housing has expressed an interest in building flats on the site.

A campaign was launched last year to save the building from being knocked down and more than 1,000 people signed a petition.

But Mr Capron, of Denmark Villas, Hove, said residents have not been consulted throughout the whole process and that it seemed like the church’s future has already been decided..

Hyde Housing said it was not viable to convert Holy Trinity Church so it would have to be knocked down.
