Police have made 27 arrests as around 300,000 people celebrated Pride in Brighton and Hove.

Officers made the arrests for a number of suspected offences related to possession of drugs, assault, drunk and disorderly and public disorder.

St John Ambulance treated approximately 204 people at the three Pride sites by 2am.

And around 100,000 people travelled through Brighton railway station.

Sussex Police's assistant chief constable Laurence Taylor said: "The overwhelming majority of people who have come to Pride have been brilliant but officers have made a number of arrests today for a variety of offences, which can be expected at such a large event.

"This is one of the biggest policing operations we manage, and it could not happen without the support and hard work from all those involved including South East Coast ambulance, East Sussex Fire and Rescue, St John Ambulance, British Transport Police, Pride and the thousands of people who travel from far and wide to attend it and help make it an amazing and fun event.

"I am also hugely proud of the officers who have been policing Pride this year, many of whom worked very long and busy shifts but remained positive and professional throughout.

"As the weekend continues I would urge people to please take care of themselves and each other. If you have come to the city with friends then stick together, have fun but make sure you all go home together - I don't want anyone to end up with not so pleasant memories of their Pride weekend.

"A visible presence of officers will remain throughout the city with plenty on hand to help if you need it. So, please do not hesitate to approach an officer if you have any concerns or need to report a crime."
