St Leonards flat fall victim named

The man who died after falling from flats in Charles Road, St Leonards-on-Sea in the early hours of New Year's Day has been named as 25-year-old Daniel Dawson from St Leonards.

His family said: "Dan lived his life to the full and was the life and soul of the party. He is sadly missed, as he always will be, by his mum, sister, brother, family and friends."

"We would respectfully ask that we are now left to share our grief in private and peace."

Detective Chief Inspector Mike Ashcroft, of the Surrey and Sussex major crime team, who is leading the investigation into Daniel's death, said: "We are keen to talk to anyone who may have information about what happened.
"If they saw or heard anything suspicious or may be able to help in any other way, I would urge them to  email or phone 101 without delay, quoting Operation Masefield."
