Three arrested after Smash EDO protest in Brighton
Three people have been arrested after locking themselves to the gates of a Brighton factory in an anti-arms protest.
Police were called to EDO in Home Farm Road, Brighton, at 5.40am today.
Three people had locked themselves to different gates at the entrance.
The factory is the target of campaign group Smash EDO, which claims EDO makes weapons components used in illegal military action.
A spokesman for Sussex Police said: "Shortly after 10am the three unlocked themselves at the request of staff at the company.
"The three, a woman and two men, were arrested on suspicion of aggravated trespass, contrary to the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act.
"There was no violence and no injury."
Police said two delivery vehicles were delayed but staff were able to get to work.
