Drivers faced major delays in the Polegate area earlier today (Saturday August 15) due to an accident.

The A27 was blocked, and there was queueing traffic and long delays eastbound between Cop Hall roundabout in Polegate and Pevensey Roundabout in Pevensey Bay.

The situation was made worse by the large amount of traffic travelling to Eastbourne Airborne.

The road has been cleared now and traffic flowing, although there are some delays with people going to Airborne.
