Speed limits of 20mph in Brighton and five East Sussex towns are not being enforced, Sussex Police has admitted.

Since the 20mph zone began in Brighton in 2013 there has been one prosecution of a man breaking the limit, who was also charged with other offences.

A Freedom of Information request by South East Today discovered no other prosecutions had taken place.
