The Land Rover driver, a 43-year-old man from Friston, sustained slight injuries for which he was treated at Eastbourne District General Hospital.

Four passengers in the Land Rover - a 40-year-old woman, a 17-year-old girl, a 12-year-old boy and a 10-year-old girl - were also treated at the EDGH for slight injuries.

The road was closed for several hours while the crash was investigated and the scene cleared. The East Sussex coroner has been informed.
