First published in News by , Crime reporter

Sussex Police has said it made a mistake when it tweeted it planned to bus groups into Brighton for March for England.

The force said on Twitter it planned to use Brighton and Hove City Buses for the event.

But the company said it was not providing buses – and the force agreed it had made an error.

“We have no current plan to bus groups into the city on 27 April. This was our mistake,” the force said.

You actually have a valid point at these events the vast majority of arrests are from the opposition usually the UAF,they were the ones throwing things at police horses.You can tell members of the UAF are out for trouble as some come with there faces covered.If the opposition did not turn up the march for England would go un-noticed.The police have a very difficult job on such days but have to have heavy security because both sides the march for England and the oppositionattract an extremist element.Just because a group calls itself UAF does not mean its peacefull far from it.In fact the UAF even go to UKIP events to protest too .

............. if they are protesting and want transport maybe they can get the train " southen is part own by the french SNCF group " or book some local companies to transport them "protesters" is Brighton bus company also not owned by the same parent company ?
Our rail operation, Govia, is 65% owned by Go-Ahead and 35% by Keolis. Keolis is a French-based operator of passenger transport services which is majority owned by the French national railway SNCF.
