Mr Ovenden said it held up traffic for 20 minutes during peak time yesterday morning (December 11).

A spokesman for Compass Bus said: “I can confirm that this was one of our buses involved in an incident this morning, and I can confirm the bus was trying to negotiate a badly parked vehicle in Lewes.

“The bus was unable to pass the vehicle and this caused delays to traffic in the area.”
