In Lewes, queueing traffic has been reported on the A26, with congestion eastbound from the Southerham roundabout to the Ashcombe roundabout.

On the railway line, delays expected in the Polegate area due to an ‘issue with the level crossing’.

Southern Rail said Network Rail staff were en-route ‘to look into the issue’ around 7pm. A spokesperson added: “Please expect your journey to take up to 15 minutes longer than usually when passing through the area.”
