A 19-year-old woman was raped in the men's toilets in a nightclub, Sussex Police revealed.

The teenager was attacked at the Digital club, Kings Road Arches, Brighton, in the early hours on Wednesday, detectives said.

The victim, who lives in the city, was sexually assaulted in the male toilets on the ground floor.

Officers said the suspect was described as being white and in his mid-20s. They have asked witnesses to contact them.
