Pink Floyd star David Gilmour has bought a £3 million six-storey mansion in Hove.

And the legendary guitarist has embarked on a major restoration of the building.

The musician, who was ranked 742nd in this year's Sunday Times Rich List with a £78 million fortune, currently lives near Crowborough. Former bandmate Roger Waters also lives in Sussex, near Horsham.

Gilmour's luxurious new house has six bedrooms, five bathrooms, parking spaces for four cars and includes a two-bedroom flat on the ground floor.
