There were major tailbacks after a vehicle collided with a manhole cover and crashed off a busy road yesterday (Thursday).
According to Sussex Police, officers were called to the A27 Lewes Road In Selmeston at 10.50am.
A witness said the large manhole cover had become dislodged by a passing HGV and forced onto the carriageway.
The cover was then struck by a passing van, forcing the vehicle off the road.
Officers managed traffic which was reduced to one lane and this caused significant delays.
Police say no injuries were reported.
