Four more men have been arrested for brawling in the street after the March for England in Brighton.

The arrests were made in the past week after Sussex Police published CCTV images of 11 people suspected of taking part in the violence.

The force has re-published pictures of two of the 11 and asked the public to help identify them.

Chairs, tables and glasses were thrown during the fight which happened at about 2pm on Sunday 27 April.

Two groups attacked each other at the corner of North Road and Gardner Street, Brighton, outside the Dorset pub and Infinity Foods.

Sussex Police said: “Four people have now been identified and arrested.

“A 17-year-old boy, a 47-year-old man and a 32-year-old man, all from Brighton, and a 46-year-old man from Henfield were arrested on suspicion of violent disorder and have been bailed until (Thursday) 11 September while investigations continue.”

Detective Inspector Vicki Harris, who has been leading the investigation, said: “Despite making arrests, we are still looking to identify these individuals who were involved in this nasty incident.

“The fight took place on a Sunday afternoon in a busy street where there were people out shopping, some with young children.

“We are extremely keen to identify these two men particularly, who played an active role in the violence and need to be held to account for their behaviour.

“We know someone will recognise these men and we are appealing to those people to give us their names.”

Anyone who can help is asked to phone Sussex Police on 101, email or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

A video was filmed from inside the pub as tables, chairs and glasses were flung.
