Council workers have cleared away tents and storm damaged debris from the Occupy Brighton site in Victoria Gardens.

Police officers stood by as tents were scooped up and rubbish removed from the area.

The clearance took place today (December 14) without incident, with some of the protesters helping the process.

Brighton and Hove City Council cabinet member for communities Ben Duncan said: “Some members of the camp helped with the clear up.

“Awful weather devastated the camp and the will of the people.

“The majority are of the view they have ‘had a good run’.”
