Police are investigating the deaths of patients at a Brighton hospital.

Sussex Police has confirmed it was looking into allegations of medical negligence at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton, East Sussex over a five-year period.

The claims concern alleged failings in neurosurgery and general surgery between 2015 and 2020.

The trust said it was co-operating fully with the investigation.

Police and the hospital trust could not confirm the number of deaths being looked at, while some reports suggested the figure was "about 40".
