Sussex Police to review their handling of two deaths

Robert Trigg was jailed for life

Sussex Police are to conduct three reviews into their handling of the deaths of two women in West Sussex.

Robert Trigg was convicted last week for the murder of Susan Nicholson in 2011 and the manslaughter of Caroline Devlin in 2006.

At the time the force found neither of the deaths to be suspicious, despite one of the victim's families campaigning for Sussex Police to reinvestigate their daughter's death. The force says it will publish key findings from the reviews.

52 year old Trigg was sentenced to life with a minimum term of 25 years.

Caroline Devlin

The IPCC has undertaken a thorough assessment of the information contained within the referral made by Sussex Police following the conviction of Robert Trigg."

“We have determined that the referral does not meet the criteria for IPCC involvement, as there have been no conduct or complaint matters identified in the referral that could allow us to determine that an independent, managed or local investigation is or is not required."

“We have requested that should any new complaint or conduct matter come to light during Sussex Police’s internal reviews, that this be referred to us.”

Police release CCTV of violent service station robbery

Police investigating the violent robbery of a service station in Cross-in-Hand in East Sussex have released dramatic CCTV of the incident.

At around 3.10am on Saturday 25th March, two men entered the Esso Service Station in Mayfield Road, one armed with a large knife and the other carrying a Samurai sword.

The attack lasted approximately two minutes during which time one shop worker was hit over the head and the other was pushed to the ground and dragged along the floor.

The two suspects then made off empty-handed in a vehicle that may have been parked in a nearby car park. The vehicle headed off at high speed towards Heathfield.
