Person arrested at Lewes Bonfire celebrations

A man has been arrested at the Lewes Bonfire celebrations after allegedly assaulting a police officer.

Thousands took to the streets of the city last night as parades of people marched through with lit torches, along with effigies of Vladimir Putin, Liz Truss, Rishi Sunak and Guy Fawkes, later destroyed in bonfires.

A spokeswoman for East Sussex Fire and Rescue Services said one person had been arrested for a public order offense at yesterday’s celebrations.

The fire service also confirmed that crews from St John’s Ambulance and the South East Coast Ambulance Service treated a “small number of people for minor injuries.”

A Sussex Police spokesman said a 22-year-old man from Haywards Heath was arrested in Lewes last night on suspicion of assaulting a police officer and committing homophobic public disorder. He remains in police custody.

Emergency services, local authorities and transport companies worked closely with bonfire clubs and the local community to prepare for the annual event, where thousands braved the wet and windy weather to see the processions and performances.

Chief Superintendent Howard Hodges said: “This year’s bonfire celebrations were uneventful and on behalf of the inter-agency group I would like to express our gratitude to the Lewes community.” Person arrested at Lewes Bonfire celebrations
