Police pursue a motorcyclist to the Shepherd and Dog

Suzuki Pro Circuit
Police chased a motorcyclist from the M23 to the Shepherd and Dog yesterday. Our man in the pub car park reports that five police cars and a helicopter were used in the pursuit. One constable went into the pub to check their CCTV images. She described the incident as “just someone being silly”. The Argus now tells us that “a 25-year-old man from Worthing has been reported for dangerous driving, speeding and failing to stop. His bike was also seized.”

Police Funding Survey

After increasing the amount we pay in our Council Tax for the Police, the frontline officer strength is being increased by 200 over the next 4 years.

The Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner believes that residents are willing to pay for more resources during the 2018-2022 period if the government removes the cap on the Police precept.
