Footballers held over sex attack

A number of Brighton and Hove Albion footballers have been arrested by police investigating a sex attack.

Six men have been held on suspicion of the alleged sexual assault of a woman in Brighton last July, Sussex Police said

Five of the men - aged 18, 19, two aged 20 and one aged 24 - are from Brighton. A sixth man, aged 20, is from Dorset.

The alleged attack was reported to police at the time but the suspects were identified only last Friday.

Four of the men were held in Brighton at 4.20am. A fifth was arrested in the city at about 7.20am and the sixth in Dorset at 10.30am.

There was no comment from the club.
