Brighton community on patrol after series of attacks

Women and members of the LGBT community in Brighton say they have been forced to patrol areas of the city at night following an increase in sexual assaults.

Volunteers - some of whom have been attacked themselves - will offer a 'buddy-up system' to walk revellers home or to safety. The move follows a vigil in Brighton's Pavilion Gardens. Andy Dickenson reports.
