    Derbyshire Police officers are helping colleagues in Kent deal with Brexit issues, an MP has said.

    Toby Perkins, Labour MP for Chesterfield, said they have been there in recent weeks to help with "public order issues in regard to Brexit lorry shipments".

    He added he had been assured they are being paid in overtime so it is not affecting numbers on the street.

    A spokeswoman for Derbyshire Police said: "This is part of an ongoing, national, mutual aid agreement between police forces."

    She added they could not say how many officers were involved "for security reasons".
