POLICE have closed a street in a busy Sussex town centre after a man was spotted sitting on the railings of a multi-storey car park.

The man had been perched precariously on the edge of Worthing’s High Street car park’s top-storey railing, in Chapel Road.

However, in the past few minutes he had been persuaded to come down from the barriers.

Officers have blocked off both ends of the street to traffic and pedestrians, while specially trained officers continue to talk to the man.

The incident has been going on since about 9.30am.
