A DRIVER has been fined for travelling to Eastbourne from Essex during lockdown.

Eastbourne Police say: “Following your reports of anti-social driving around #BeachyHead#Eastbourne, your Eastbourne Neighbourhood Policing Teams spent time this weekend conducting various road safety checks.

One driver was checked and found to hold no insurance for the vehicle. They will be reported to court for the offence of no insurance.

On further engagement with the driver, they were also found to have no reasonable excuse to be in the area, having travelled from Essex. They were therefore also issued an FPN for breaching lockdown restrictions.

You can report a range of ASB driving to our Operation Crackdown team, including excess speed, and using a mobile phone whilst driving.”
