Police are appealing for help in identifying two men who were at a protest at University of Sussex last month.

Just before 1.50pm on Wednesday November 14, police were called to the Silverstone Building in Arts Road on the University of Sussex campus at Falmer, after a report of a disturbance.

A large group of people were outside the building where Mike Weatherley MP for Hove and Portslade was present.

Officers took Mr Weatherley to safety in a police van. One of his team reported suffering a slight injury by a stone which had been thrown.

Detective Constable Sophie Tullett of Brighton and Hove CID said:

“We are continuing to investigate this incident and are appealing for these men to contact police to help us with our enquiries.
“We would also like to hear from anyone who recognises them.”

On Friday November 23,  a 24-year-old man from Brighton was arrested on suspicion of affray in relation to the incident and has been released on bail until January 18, 2013, pending further enquiries.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Sussex Police on 101 quoting Operation Pool or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
