Sussex Police consistently perform their duties admirably, however they often need your help. See if you can provide any information on the following incidents over the last few days.

Police today issued a plea for any information regarding a collision between two lorries on the A27 near Lewes. The crash, which blocked much of the road on Monday 11th July, happened near Firle between a yellow Volvo 320 truck and a white Isuzu Easy Shift. The driver of the former vehicle, a 27-year-old man, was taken to Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton while the driver and passenger in the Isuzu, 41 and 56 respectively, had their wounds treated at the scene.

Sussex Police also asked the public today for any information regarding the whereabouts of a missing woman and a wanted man. Charlotte Leskos, 19, was reported missing by her family while the man, 20-year-old Vekim Sokoli, has been wanted in the Essex area since the 16th of June. Brighton is one of his known links and so on the behalf of the authorities in Essex, Brighton and Hove Police are desperate for people to be on the lookout for the pair.
