SUSSEX Police will not be policing Tier borders.

This will fuel fears people from Hastings and Rother in Tier 4 will come to Eastbourne in Tier 2.

The Argus has been talking to Sussex Police today.

A spokeswoman for Sussex Police said: “We will continue policing the restrictions the same way we have throughout the pandemic, by using the four Es – engage, explain, encourage and enforce.

“Should there be reckless or deliberate breaches of the regulations we may go straight to enforcement activity.

“We are not policing the border between tiers specifically – our response to Covid matters is far wider than just the border.”
