POLICE officers from across Sussex are to be given new equipment to stop suspects who try to escape in vehicles.

Stop Stick devices are used to puncture the tyres of vehicles that are being pursued by police, forcing the suspects to slow down.

The equipment features hollow steel spikes and is laid in the path of a vehicle so that when it is driven over, the tyres of the vehicle deflate.
