We are sorry to say that a number of beach huts on Worthing seafront have been destroyed by arsonists.
The incident, which took place on the promenade opposite Heene Road, took place in the early hours of Saturday.
A stolen moped was also found burned near the scene.
Teams from our Environmental Services attended shortly after to clear the debris and minimise disruption through the weekend. The tenants of the huts have also been informed and we're working to replace the huts as soon as possible.
We will continue to work with West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service and Sussex Police with their inquiries.
Anyone with information can call Sussex Police on 101 quoting ref: 2979.
