Police are appealing for witnesses to a collision involving an elderly pedestrian and a car in Eastbourne.

Sussex Police says a Renault Scenic vehicle was travelling westbound in Royal Parade when it collided with a 91-year-old man who was on or close to the central reservation just west of the Beach Road junction.

He was said to have suffered a fractured arm and was taken to the Eastbourne DGH after the incident at 6pm on Sunday (February 11). The 70-year-old woman driver was reportedly not injured.
