**Please read the Newsdesk notes below**

A nine-year-old boy is in police protection following an incident in Brighton in the early hours of this morning (Saturday 10 August).

A 30-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman, both from London, have been arrested on suspicion of child neglect and remain in custody at this stage.

The investigation is ongoing, and for this reason we would urge members of the public not to speculate around the circumstances.


We do not expect to publish any further updates today. Any updates we do have will be published on this website.

Our colleagues in Force Contact, Command and Control (FCCC) on 01273 470101 Ext 543005 will endeavour to assist with urgent media enquiries when the Newsdesk is closed and if there is an operational requirement from the Force the duty media relations officer will be deployed.

However, as usual, this will not be for routine or speculative enquiries and your co-operation and understanding of this arrangement is much appreciated.

Please note that these are not press officers and their priority lies with dealing with operational matters; your call may not get answered or dealt with immediately.
