Five sought over Brighton nationalist march violence

Five people are being sought by police who are investigating violence during a nationalist march in Brighton.

A 10-year-old girl and two police officers were hurt when bottles were hurled during the March for England annual event on 22 April.

The gathering attracted counter-demonstrations by anti-fascist protesters, leading to three arrests.

Police have published photographs of five people who are suspected of throwing items.

They said there was a "considerable level of violence" directed at the 140 marchers and attempts were made to block them at several points along the route.

The three people arrested were all men who were not connected to the march and were detained on suspicion of public order offences at separate points along the route.

One was later released without charge, while the other two, both aged 20, are on police bail pending further inquiries.
