The publisher of former spin doctor Damian McBride's memoirs has received a police caution after admitting common assault over a brawl with a protester during a live television interview.

Political blogger Iain Dale, from Tunbridge Wells, attended Brighton's John Street police station to be interviewed by Sussex Police detectives about the scuffle with veteran campaigner, Stuart Holmes.

The incident on Brighton seafront was on the same day as Ed Miliband's keynote speech at the Labour party conference.

It appeared that Mr Dale tried to get Mr Holmes' anti-nuclear banner out of shot during an interview.
