Investigations were continuing today into a double stabbing that left a Sussex man fighting for his life.

A 45-year-old man was admitted to hospital on Friday with serious injuries after a man, believed to be his girlfriend's ex-partner, broke into her home and stabbed him.

Police were called to a disturbance in Bishopric Court, Horsham, where they found two men with stab wounds at 8.45am.

Both men were taken to separate, undisclosed hospitals.

The 45-year-old man received treatment for life-threatening injuries.

The other man, aged 37, was given plastic surgery but his injuries were not described as life-threatening.

Police say a blue E-registration Maestro car pulled up at the address at 8am.
