Snow caused problems this morning (Tuesday January 20) on the A259 between Seaford and Eastbourne.

Between 6.30am and 7am police received calls about problems with snow between Seaford and the Exceat Bridge at Cuckmere Haven.

A Ford Fiesta car rolled onto its side after going out of control on the hill.

The driver, a man, was able to get out, but had sustained a whiplash injury.

Earlier, in the same vicinity, a Mercedes-Benz CL220 car became stuck between two lanes of traffic.

The driver was unhurt and was later able to move the vehicle and continue his journey towards Eastbourne.

Some buses in the area were reported to have lost traction and become stuck, and gritters were deployed to help clear snow and ice.

Elsewhere, adverse weather was also believed to have led to traffic problems in the Polegate area, north of Eastbourne.
