OFFICERS pinned a shouting man to the ground in a seafront road.

Police attended the scene in Marine Parade, Brighton, shortly before 4.30pm this afternoon.

Sussex Police say a man was arrested after staff at the nearby Brighton Palace Pier were allegedly threatened with a pair of scissors.

Video from the scene shows two officers restraining the man outside the entrance of the Sea Life Brighton aquarium.

The man can be heard shouting loudly, though it is unclear what he is saying.

The Argus:

A woman is speaking with an officer who is standing nearby, outside a police van parked near the Aquarium Roundabout.

She points towards Madeira Drive and the officer vaults a metal railing before accompanying her to the seafront road.

A Sussex Police spokesman said:  "A man was arrested after allegedly threatening security staff at Brighton's Palace Pier with a pair of scissors.
