We were called at 10:59 to attend an RTC involving one HGV and one van on A27 Lewes Bypass.
Crews from Uckfield, Seaford, Lewes and Preston Circus (Brighton) attended. Four persons were reported trapped. Four were extricated from one of the vehicles. Crews made the scene safe and left the scene at 13:40. The incident was handed over to Sussex Police.
The A27 will remain fully closed for some hours yet and the westbound carriageway may not reopen until into the evening. Please avoid the area, but if you have to travel in the area, please make sure that you have water in this hot weather as there is serious congestion locally.
