Police are appealing for witnesses to a road rage incident near Polegate on Wednesday (October 28) just before 1pm.

A 37-year-old man from Eastbourne was driving along the A22 in a blue BMW when he pulled up alongside a grey Vauxhall Zafira by the Cophall roundabout.

There were five men inside this car and the driver began shouting abuse at the victim before getting out. He walked around the back of the BMW to the driver’s side and kicked the rear passenger door causing a dent before getting back behind the wheel and driving off.

PC Matthew Adam said, “We would like to hear from anyone who may have seen what happened on this busy stretch of road at around lunchtime.

“Witnesses can either email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call 101 quoting reference 0622 of 28/10/.”
