A woman was taken away by police after refusing to leave Costa coffee on London Road this afternoon.
Customers and staff watched as the middle-aged woman argued with the manager when he asked her to sit outside.
She refused to move, saying it was “too cold”.
The police were called around 4pm to escort the woman out of the shop, where she sat for a few minutes before being taken away in the police car.
Sussex Police said the woman had not committed any offence and those that called the emergency services were “concerned about her behaviour”.
Both the manager and the staff refused to comment.
