Police said a Rover 100 being driven by a 30-year old man from Polegate collided with a Mercedes A160 driven by a 49-year old woman from Chiddingly.

The Rover driver was taken by air ambulance to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton with serious injuries.

The road was closed for nearly four hours while police, assisted by highway staff, dealt with the scene and began an investigation.

Police are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the collision.
