An elderly man has been found dead by firefighters called to a block of flats in West Sussex.

West Sussex Fire and Rescue said it was alerted by a neighbour who reported the smell of smoke coming from a flat in George House, Manor Road, Selsey.

Fire crews forced entry to the flat just before 13:00 BST and found a small fire in the kitchen that was already out. The man was found in the bedroom.

The fire is thought to have started accidentally.

Fire crews said the flat was fitted with a smoke alarm but it was found to have no battery.
