An air ambulance was called to Eastbourne seafront last night (Wednesday) after a collision involving a cyclist.

Emergency services were called to Cavendish Avenue just after 5pm where a car and cyclist had collided.

A spokesperson for Sussex Police said the cyclist suffered a minor head injury.

The air ambulance landed on the beach to the left of the pier.
