A 21-year-old woman was cut free from the VW by firefighters and was airlifted to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton with multiple serious injuries. She was recovering on Sunday evening following surgery.

A 39-year-old man from St Leonards was removed from the Astra and was also taken to the RSCH with suspected serious internal injuries, but was released later in the day.

The road was closed until just after 2.30pm for rescue and recovery work to take place and police have thanked road users for their patience as there was considerable disruption in the area. They have also thanked local businesses for their support of emergency workers at the scene.

Anyone who witnessed the collision or who may have seen either vehicle in the area in the time leading up to it is asked to email collision.appeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call 101 quoting Operation Airdale.
