What on earth is going on in Brighton? It has become a very unsafe place full of criminals with daily occurrences of violent and anti social crime of one sort or another, not somewhere in which people can walk the streets safely. There is probably less chance of being attacked on the streets of London.

If you read the article you'd see the attack was in St Leonards about 40 miles east of Brighton!
