Gridlocked traffic in Battle Road, St Leonards

MOTORISTS were caught up in severe traffic jams this evening across Hastings and Rother as snow continued to fall.

Some desperate drivers were forced to abandon their cars by the side of the road after being stuck in gridlocked rush-hour roads.

There were accidents on icy roads including reports of a lorry overturning on Queensway. A snow plough was drafted in to clear The Ridge of snow.

Signal problems on the railway between Eastbourne and Hastings also severely delayed train commuters on their way home.

Journey times of up to two hours have been reported from Battle to Hastings by road.
