TWO Shoreham drivers have been charged this month as part of Operation Dragonfly, Sussex Police’s crackdown on drink and drug-driving.

Chloe McCullough, 26, was arrested at 8.55pm on June 17 after officers were called to a crash on the A259 in Hove.

McCullough, of Mill Hill, Shoreham, was charged with failing to provide a specimen and assaulting a police officer.

She was released on bail to appear at Brighton Magistrates’ Court on July 31.

Joanne Dennett, 49, was arrested at 2.20pm on Wednesday, June 18, after she was found in a car with the engine running in Albany Villas, Hove.

Dennett, of Harbour Way, Shoreham, was charged with failing to provide a specimen and was released on bail to appear at Brighton Magistrates’ Court on August 7.

Another 28 people are to appear in court after they were charged with offences as part of Sussex’s summer road-safety blitz.

Superintendent Jane Derrick, the head of the force’s roads policing unit, said: “A large proportion of those who we are arresting are being found behind the wheel in the early hours of the morning.

“If you think you can get away with drink-driving at 1am you should think again. Our officers are out on patrol looking for the slightest indication that you are unfit to be on the roads.

“You are not just putting your own life at risk, you are endangering everyone else using the roads.”
