Hundreds of protesters are expected to gather for a pro-Palestine rally this afternoon.

Organisers say hundreds are expected to gather at the Old Steine War Memorial in the centre of Brighton from 1pm for a demonstration organised by the Brighton and Hove Palestine Solidarity Campaign.

The protest follows a demo in London yesterday which saw 15,000 walk the streets of the capital while a similar protest in Brighton and Hove last week lead to a temporary road closure as protesters made their way to Churchill Square.
