The air ambulance landed on Worthing beach and transferred the casualty to hospital at 1pm.

Marc Jeffery, 23, who was at the scene shortly after the incident, said: “It appears it was a window cleaner who was working up there, when the railings gave way.

“I saw the paramedics and then the helicopter land.”

Another eyewitness, who would not be named, added: “I was working nearby and heard a scream. I turned round and somebody had fallen from the balcony.”
