A pedestrian was taken to hospital after being hit by a van in Hailsham town centre yesterday (Friday, October 28).

The collision, which took place at around 1.40pm near the Tesco store in North Street, involved a white Vauxhall Vivaro van and a male pedestrian.

The pedestrian, who was described as young man or teenager, received treatment for head injuries at the scene before being taken to hospital.

A police spokesman said they were not believed to be serious injuries like previously thought but were minor cuts to his head.

Police closed the southbound carriageway while emergency services were at the scene, which reopened just before 7pm.
