The seafront in the resort of Worthing on England's south coast was closed for a few hours on Sunday afternoon after a small number of people reported symptoms including sore eyes and vomiting, police said.

The cordon is in place along Marine Parade between Grand Avenue and Windsor Road.

"We'd like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding during the incident", police said, adding that they are following up "a number of lines" of inquiry as the investigation into the incident continues.

Emergency services are advising locals to shut all windows and doors and avoid the area.

In 2017, a mysterious chemical haze left scores of people on the coast about 30 miles away with streaming eyes, sore throats and breathing problems.

She wrote on Facebook: 'My friend complained of burning eyes this morning just after 11am while we were sitting on the beach'. Social media users reported being evacuated from the pier, but this has not been confirmed by Sussex Police.

The seafront has now been re-opened, though police say they are continuing to investigate.

"How unsafe is this and what symptoms should we be aware of?"

A two-mile cordon has been set up on Worthing seafront.

A Worthing Fire Station tweet, just before 2pm, said: "Emergency services are now responding to a hazardous material incident in Worthing".
