The A27 is closed in two places this evening (27 March).
Earlier this afternoon, three vehicles were involved in a crash on the Pevensey Bypass, resulting in the road being closed between the A22 Golden Jubilee Way and the A259 Pevensey roundabout.
Two people are believed to have been trapped and fire crews from Eastbourne and Pevensey were called. East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service has confirmed to Eastbourne buzz that within the last few minutes (5.50pm), they have left the scene.
SECAmb and the air ambulance were also called and Eastbourne Police say the road is likely to remain closed for a few hours.
Stagecoach say their 99 service is being delayed in the Pevensey area, owing to the closure.
Now, the A27 has been closed in both directions between A2270 Polegate crossroads and Drusillas Roundabout. No other details are yet known.
