More than 1,700 drivers were caught in a week-long crack-down on speeding by Sussex Police.

A total of 1,403 speeding vehicles were caught using static and mobile cameras and a further 357 caught using mobile detectors, in the week from 15 April.

Police said one of the highest speeds recorded was a van being driven at 93mph in a 60mph zone, on the A27.

Since the beginning of the year, 192 people have been seriously injured and eight killed on Sussex's roads.
