Traffic is building up between Hastings and Sedlescombe after the Eddie Stobart vehicle crashed into a ditch earlier this afternoon.

Bob Okines, who took the above photograph, said he expected there to be traffic delays for ‘quite some time’ following the incident.

A Sussex Police spokesman said: “A lorry overturned on to its side and left the road on the southbound A21 at Sedlescombe between Claremont School and Golf Club Road at 1pm on Friday (December 21).

“There were no injuries. The owners are making arrangements for its recovery.”
