"POLICE officers in Brighton and Hove could be set for a Mini adventure with this snazzy new arrival to the force fleet.
The force was offered the chance to trial the new Mini as a concept vehicle a year ago with a diesel Mini from BMW tested for its effectiveness in neighbourhood policing.
Having been used in East Sussex for the past 12 months, the Mini has now moved to Brighton and Hove to see how effective it could be.
Dennis Ord, the head of joint transport for Surrey and Sussex Police, said: “The aim is to see if the Mini can carry more than a Fiesta but is cheaper to run than a Focus.
“It is a low-spec Mini and was nearly new when we got it so it is in warranty for another 18 months and has so far proved very popular with the officers who have used it."
