A CANDIDATE supporting the Titnore Woods eco-protest camp in Worthing has been arrested at the election count.

Dawn Smith, who was standing for the Stop Durrington's Overdevelopment - Save Titnore's Trees party, in the borough's Northbrook ward, was arrested after a row at Worthing's Assembly Hall, apparently for "disorderly behaviour".

Some campers from Titnore Woods, who had come to support her, were denied entry by security.

According to the local rag: "Others were dragged from the building by security guards crying "This is not democracy".

More later.
