PC Tom Van Der Wee said on Twitter: "On scene with @HantsPolRoads at a non injury HGV vs car collision on the westbound carriageway of the #A27 between #Chichester and #Emsworth.

"Lane 2 is closed on both the eastbound and westbound carriageway. Traffic is heavy but flowing."

He later provided an update, and said: "Update: Both lane 2’s will remain closed for at least the next couple of hours due to the significant damage that has been caused to the crash barrier.

"@SussexRoadsPol remain in attendance pending assistance from Highways. Traffic is still heavy but flowing freely."
