Sussex Police was called at 3pm to Church Lane in Sompting, at the junction with the A27 Sompting Bypass. A spokesman said one car was involved, and the driver - a man in his thirties - has been left in the care of the ambulance crew. They did not provide information on his condition. The fire service also attended at 3.23pm, with engines sent from Worthing and Shoreham along with the heavy rescue tender from Worthing. Pictures show the car was cut open as part of the rescue operation. The outside lane of the westbound carriageway of the Sompting Bypass was closed during the emergency response. As of 5pm, both lanes on the A27 were open but Church Lane remains closed.
