Police say the man, from Pevensey Bay, had been trying to remove an engine from a BMW car in a field off Station Road.

But a jack used to support the vehicle collapsed, trapping the man beneath it.

Emergency services, including an air ambulance, attended the incident at Downash, shortly before 6pm on Wednesday (April 11) but were sadly unable to save him.
