A MOTORIST was taken to hospital after her car skidded off the road in icy weather on Monday morning.

The woman was heading along Powdermill Lane in Battle when her car left the road and collided with a fence near the junction with Telham Lane.

Police and ambulance crews were called to the scene just after 7am.

Meanwhile another vehicle had stopped to help the stricken woman.

A man was treated by paramedics on the scene.

Sussex Police say the road was cleared by 9am.
