Clara Byrne, 21, who is the frontwoman in Brighton-based ska band Dakka Skanks, said she and her friend were attacked when trying to protect another woman from a group of black men.But all is not quite as it seems. And the police aren't going to let this one go by:
But a Sussex Police spokeswoman said: “Police received a report at 5.30am on Saturday of an assault on two women in Marine Drive.
“Officers attended and found a man had been assaulted allegedly by a woman, reported by witnesses including door staff. The woman was not arrested as the victim did not want any further action.
The woman had no injuries, however if there were further offences or assault taken place, she is urged to contact police immediately so there can be an investigation.”Heh! Maybe she'll find that not all publicity is good publicity after all...
