Sussex police condemn 'unacceptable' road death figures

Police have targeted motorists on a major Sussex route where five people died and a further 25 were seriously injured in the past two years.

Sussex Police said the casualty figures for the A23/M23 stretch that runs from London to Brighton were "unacceptable".

Officers stopped about 1,500 drivers for offences including speeding, driving without insurance and not wearing seatbelts.

Sgt Pete Verney said he would continue to target "anti-social" motorists.
