DRIVERS of 4x4 vehicles from across Sussex are to help police deal with major emergencies.

An agreement has been signed by volunteer group Sussex 4x4 Response and Sussex Police, which will see the charity’s members support officers at some major incidents.

Emergencies such as the heavy snow that has fallen have shown the benefit of having an extra fleet of all-weather vehicles available to the emergency services.

Under the new agreement, members of Sussex 4x4 Response will volunteer to help with transportation in difficult conditions at short notice around the clock.
