Two more local men have been charged with offences as part of Sussex Police’s Christmas crackdown on drink and drug-driving.

David Browning, 48, was arrested at 9.30pm on December 29 in Seaside Road, Eastbourne, after he went through a red light.

Browning, of Hailsham Road, Polegate, was charged with drink-driving and released on bail to appear at Hastings Magistrates’ Court on February 18.

Glenn Gallagher, 36, was arrested shortly after midnight on December 30 after he was seen driving erratically in the Langney Shopping Centre car park in Eastbourne.

Gallagher, of Snowdon Close, Eastbourne, was charged with drink-driving and released on bail to appear at Hastings Magistrates’ Court on February 18.

A total of 108 motorists have so far been charged with offences after they were arrested this month in Sussex’s drink and drug-driving crackdown.

For the first time, the December campaign is being run jointly by Sussex Police and Surrey Police alongside Sussex Safer Roads Partnership, Drive Smart in Surrey and the independent charity Crimestoppers.

As part of Operation Dragonfly - Sussex Police’s year-round strategy to remove drink and drug-drivers from the streets - roads policing unit officers are on dedicated patrols looking for offenders.

Teams will also respond to tip-offs from members of the public who see someone they know has been drinking getting into a car to drive.

The names of those charged are being proactively published.

People in Sussex can text officers on 65999 with the details of people they suspect of drink or drug driving or visit www.operationcrackdown.co.uk.
