Police in the British seaside city of Brighton have issued an appeal for help. They want to find three men to question in connection with an anti-gay assault.

The city, on England’s south coast, is famed as one of the country’s most gay-friendly locations. It hosted a huge Pride festival over the weekend which featured a headline appearance from Britney Spears.

However, ahead of the weekend festivities, local police released the CCTV images of three men wanted in connection with an incident that took place in June.

‘The trio attended Seaside Kebabs in Kings Road, Brighton, about 4.30am on Thursday 7 June, where they are reported to have made derogatory comments about homosexuality, before a verbal altercation ensued with at least two other customers, who were then assaulted,’ says a police statement.

‘One of the victims – a 21-year-old man from Suffolk – sustained a fractured jaw and a laceration to his face which required stitches; the other – a 22-year-old man from Gloucestershire – sustained minor facial injuries.’

Police say the men, all described as Asian, might be from London.

Anyone with information can call 101 in the UK, quoting serial 146 of 07/06.
