A motorcyclist has been airlifted to hospital after a crash outside the Tesco garage at Polegate last night (Friday).

The accident happened during rush hour on the busy road out of Eastbourne.

There were long delays as emergency services rushed to the scene.

An eye witness said, “There has been a bad accident by Tesco petrol station. There’s a motorcycle under the front of a car and the passenger laying on the other side of the road is being treated. It looks like it was head on.”

The Sussex Air Ambulance landed close to Polegate High Street and the motorcyclist is believed to have been flown to the closest trauma unit at Brighton.
