Firefighters called to assist paramedics at second East Sussex incident

Two roads in East Sussex had to be closed whilst emergency services responded to incidents today (Sunday, November 21).

According to traffic sources, the road was closed for just 20 minutes whilst firefighters assisted ambulance crews.
