Animal rights protester Sarah Whitehead given Criminal Behaviour Order
A woman has been banned from an area of Hove near Coral Greyhound Stadium after breaching the conditions of a Community Protection Notice.
Sarah Whitehead, 64, of Westmoreland Court, Uckfield, was handed a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) by Brighton Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday 20 July.

In December 2020, she was convicted of using threatening or abusive words or behaviour or disorderly behaviour within the hearing or sight of a person likely to be caused harassment, alarm or distress.
The conditions of the CBO ban her from entering at any time an area including:
- Court Farm Road east into Nevill Road.
- Nevill Road junction with Court Farm Road to the junction with Old Shoreham Road into Sackville Road the junction with Poynter Road.
- North from traffic light in Woodland Drive to the roundabout with Goldstone Crescent.
- East to the junction with Old Shoreham Road.
- West along A270 Old Shoreham Road, right into Holmes Avenue, then north up to Court Farm Road.
The CBO came into place on Tuesday 20 July, 2021 and lasts for five years.
Brighton dangerous driving suspect remanded in custody
A man has been remanded in custody after appearing in court accused of dangerous driving and drugs offences.
Police were on patrol on the A259 at Brighton seafront shortly before 10.30am on Sunday (July 18) when they attempted to stop the driver of a blue Citroen C4 hire car.

Officers from the Specialist Enforcement Unit pursued the vehicle, and during the incident the driver discarded a mobile phone and a pink plastic carrier bag from the vehicle.
The carrier bag was recovered by officers and inside it they found a box containing cannabis and amphetamines.
Four minutes later the driver stopped the vehicle in Hove and was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving.
Following enquiries by the Brighton Investigations team, the suspect was further arrested on suspicion of possessing cannabis and amphetamines with intent to supply, driving without insurance, and driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence.
Halmat Mohammed Jabar, 25, of The Crestway, Brighton, was charged by police and appeared before Brighton Magistrates’ Court on Monday (July 19).
