Two of the 18 people arrested in Brighton yesterday (Saturday 2 June) will be brought before magistrates in just under three weeks’ time.

One of those arrested during the gathering of English nationalists and UK Uncut supporters – a 51-year-old man from Hull – was still in custody earlier.

Sussex Police said that officers were still investigating after the man was held on suspicion of criminal damage and assaulting a police officer.

He was also believed to have breached a notice served under section 27 of the Violent Crime Reduction Act – ordering him to leave the area.
