The Chief Constable of Sussex, Paul Whitehouse, is to plead guilty to a charge of careless driving, following an accident. Mr Whitehouse and his 16-year-old daughter suffered minor injuries in May, when their car was in collision with another vehicle on a country road near Tunbridge Wells, Kent. The female driver of the car and her two children also suffered very minor injuries.

The incident took place while Mr Whitehouse was off-duty and no disciplinary action is to be taken against him. A spokeswoman for Sussex police confirmed yesterday that Mr Whitehouse would be pleading guilty by post to driving without due care and attention. He is likely to be fined and given penalty points on his licence.
