One man who was arrested on suspicion of using threatening behaviour on the day of the protests has now had the case against him dropped.
Alexander Weir, of Gratwicke Road, Worthing, had the charge against him discontinued at Brighton Magistrates’ Court on November 8 after the Crown Prosecution Service abandoned the prosecution.
A Sussex Police spokesman said: “Several of the five people whose photographs were published in May have been traced but there was insufficient evidence to enable them to be prosecuted.”
March for England earlier this month revealed it was planning a repeat event in the city for St George’s Day next year.
A spokesman for Unite Against Fascism said: “We firmly believe that the wider public in Brighton oppose the presence of a racist march in our city, and wish to demonstrate against it.
“It is our commitment to do all we can to ensure Brightonians can protest safely without threat of violence or arrest from the far-right or the police, which was the case for the majority of people on April 22.
“We hope that the police will now join us in this commitment.”
