There are long delays on the A259 between St Leonards and Bexhill due to roadworks and an earlier collision.

According to traffic reports, there was a collision on the A259 Little Common Road westbound close to the Wheatsheaf Inn.

The queues as a result have been worsened due to temporary traffic lights around gas works near the Ravenside retail and leisure park.
