An oil spill on the A21 at Hurst Green is causing delays this evening (July 10).

Emergency services are on scene and the road is partly blocked northbound after a double decker bus lost a large amount of oil on the road near the Ashdene service station.

A transit van has also broken down between the A229 Coopers Corner and B2099 Ticehurst turn off.

Rother Police said on Twitter: “A21 northbound at Ashdene Service Station closed after a double decker bus lost the oil from its engine and stopped. 150M of oil in the carriageway. Seek alternative routes.”
