Based in Brighton, the series follows the lives of front line police officers around Brighton and Sussex, serving the fictional ‘South Sussex Police’ service.

The Port was approached by the director and producer of Cuffs at the beginning of the year.

Director of engineering, Tony Parker, said he ‘was only too pleased’ to show the crew around and after two visits they decided Shoreham Port would be the perfect location to film one of their dramatic car chases.

Mr Parker said: “The writers and producers of the Cuffs series really loved the variety of settings that the Port gives.

“The combination of water, busy commerce, leisure boating and fishing seemed to offer great scope for a dramatic chase to fit into their story line.

“I gather the ‘Port’ episode is one of the best and I’m really looking forward to seeing it.”

Marketing and communications executive Katie Orchin, added: “As a Trust Port we are always keen to assist businesses with an interest in the local area.

“We were happy to help the Cuffs team create some light entertainment for the local community to enjoy.

“The fictional police drama show cases some of the unique and interesting landmarks Sussex has to offer, whilst sparking the imagination of criminal activity.”

The Port appeared in Wednesday’s (December 2) episode of the show on BBC 1 at 8pm.

There will be a total of eight episodes, with the final airing on Wednesday, December 16.
