BBC Reporter Abused In Brighton Street

A TV reporter working in a Brighton street has been subjected to abuse and offensive remarks by a group of men.

The reporter from BBC South East Today was recording in Roedale Road near the Hollingbury pub in Brighton at around 6.30pm on Tuesday (Oct 5) when several young men jumped in front of the camera and shouted abusive and offensive comments, some directed at the reporter, before running off.

Police want to identify the men with a view to potentially prosecuting them under Public Order legislation.

Nobody was assaulted during the incident and there was no damage.

If you saw what happened and have any information that could help identify these men please contact Sussex Police, either online or by calling 101, quoting serial 1293 of 05/10.
