Statement from the Sussex Resilience Forum

THE Sussex Resilience Forum is working as always with local transport operators and businesses to help keep the county moving and supplied.
Sailings from Newhaven Port for accompanied freight and tourist traffic have been suspended for 48 hours to comply with the temporary French ban on people travelling from the UK.
Hauliers booked on these services have been contacted and told not to set out. Sailings continue for unaccompanied freight trailers.
The port of Newhaven has not reported any congestion at its site and traffic on roads in Sussex was at normal levels this morning.
 Some passengers have been unable to fly as planned from Gatwick to countries which have temporary restrictions on UK arrivals but the airport is operating flights to other destinations from its North terminal. Passengers are asked to check travel details with their airline before heading to Gatwick.
The Government advises shoppers to continue as normal, with supermarkets and other food businesses well-stocked.
