We are appealing for information after members of the public were assaulted during disorder at Brighton Station including a woman who had her teeth knocked out.

The incident happened on Saturday 22 July at around 11.45pm.

A fight broke out on the concourse which resulted in members of the public sustaining serious injuries.

A 25-year-old woman had her teeth knocked out and a 30-year-old man sustained a broken nose. Both were taken to hospital for treatment. A 28-year-old man sustained an injury to his head but did not require hospital treatment.
