Eyewitnesses reported seeing a vehicle laying on its side and vehicles ‘with bits hanging off’ in the aftermath of the accident.

Firefighters from Eastbourne and Seaford Fire Stations were called to the scene and a woman had to be cut free from the wreckage of one of the vehicles.

The patient was left in the care of the paramedics, but Sussex Police say she only suffered minor injuries.

The road was closed in both directions and traffic was diverted round Beachy Head.
