Police were called at 8.35am to Pilgrims Walk near to West Worthing railway station where ‘two men were reported fighting’, Sussex Police said.

A spokeswoman from Sussex Police said the 17-year-old boy was arrested ‘on suspicion of affray’ and ‘remains in custody at the time’.

She added: “There are no details on injury at the moment but it does appear that neither people were seriously hurt.”
