The March for England demonstration has now gathered in a Brighton pub.

The 200-strong march which claims to be a non political event celebrating St George's Day has caused outrage amongst some groups who have organised counter demonstrations.

The march began at Brighton station at 12pm and is being closely watched by officers from Sussex Police.

The MFE members have now gathered in the King & Queen pub in Marlborough Place, Brighton.

Argus reporter Becky Evans is outside the pub, she said: "There are teams of anti fascist demonstrators shouting from behind a barrier. They are from a group called Brighton Unity.

"Three large police vans are parked up keeping an eye on the two groups.

"The March for England members are inside the pub now but it's just a case of seeing what happens when they come out."

A spokesman for Sussex Police said: "There has been around half an hour of disruption as they made their way from the station to Victoria Gardens.

"They are now mostly inside the pub and we are keeping an eye on things."


A number of clashes between nationalist marchers and anti-fascist protestors have been reported.

It is believed three people have been arrested so far on public order offences and for breaching the peace.

A Sussex Police spokeswoman said there had been a number of minor "skirmishes" as the marchers left the King and Queen pub.

She added that there was still a "police presence" at Victoria Gardens.
