Dear Sussex Police,
"Mr Miller also confirmed the force commissioned a 'thorough independent review' of the drone incident."
In a letter to the couple shared by their legal team, Sussex Police Assistant Chief Constable David Miller said: 'I am deeply sorry that you both experienced the unpleasantness of arrest and detention incommunicado for approximately 36 hours.
Provide the independent review.
If the review is not complete, provide the expected completion date.
How did you pay for the victims legal costs (lawyers etc.).

Thank you for your request which was received by Sussex Police.
This request will be dealt with under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and you will receive a response within the statutory timescale of 20 working days as defined by the Act, from the date of receipt. In some circumstances Sussex Police may be unable to achieve this deadline. If this is likely you will be informed and given a revised time-scale at the earliest opportunity.
Some requests may also require either full or partial transference to another public authority in order to answer your query in the fullest possible way. Again, you will be informed if this is the case.
Sussex Police are currently receiving a high volume of FOI requests at a time of reduced staffing levels to process them. Every effort is being made to comply with the statutory 20 working day response deadline but on occasions this may not be possible – we apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.
