Pictures from the scene show a Breheny van damaged underneath the weight of a large lorry.

The incident has happened close to the new stretch of Queensway Gateway which was opened yesterday (Tuesday, March 19).

It was reported to have happened at 5pm – shortly after the new stretch of road opened.

A spokesman for Sea Change said: “This wasn’t to do with any public traffic but a minor accident between two construction vehicles: a lorry unloading ballast tipped over onto a Breheny van.

“I understand no-one was hurt and, apart from some red faces, there were no other consequences, fortunately.”

The incident is not disrupting traffic on the newly-opened section of the Queensway Gateway road.

Access to the Emmaus Hastings and Rother charity superstore has not been affected.
