THE A22 road northbound from the Cophall Roundabout to Polegate was closed on Wednesday (September 26) due to the road surface being contaminated with a type of oil.

It is thought an incident involving a vehicle led to the road being ‘very slippery’, according to road traffic police who said there were already a couple of collisions before the road was shut.

A special gritting lorry spurced up the road surface.
