Emergency services were called to the A2100 London Road, Battle, at Virgins Lane at 5.55pm after a black Jeep Cherokee and a white Audi TT travelling south and a grey Renault Megane travelling north crashed.

The drivers of the Audi, the 59-year-old Eastbourne woman, and the Renault, a 50-year-old woman from Hurst Green, were both taken by ambulance to the Conquest Hospital, St Leonards, with fractures, bruising and whiplash injuries.

The Jeep driver, a 73-year-old man from Pennsylvania, USA, and his passengers – a 71-year-old woman from Pennsylvania, a 76-year-old-woman from Hornsea, Yorkshire, and an 84-year-old man from Beverley, Yorkshire – were all unhurt.

The A2100 was closed to traffic for two-and-a-half hours while the incident was dealt with.

Battle and Hastings firefighters made the area safe after five litres of oil was spilt on the road.
