HEATHER Mills scaled on top of the roof of her new cafe to encourage Hove locals to join her for a veggie feast.

Ms Mills climbed up a ladder and perched precariously on the edge of the new VBites cafe at Hove Lagoon on at the official opening on Saturday.

After climbing on to the roof she said: “My grandma lived here for 38 years and I've been down the road for 10 years.

“I wanted to bring something back to revive this area.

“So much goes on down the road in Brighton and I don't think there's enough going on here.

“There were rumours circulating that I was trying to shut the skate park down, but that's not true. I support the skaters.”
