The A21 was partially blocked on Monday (September 3) after a two-vehicle road traffic collision, according to traffic reports.

The collision – first reported at 3.32pm – happened on the A21 Kent Street southbound at Moat Lane, near to Claremont School.

Traffic reports said the congestion was back up to Sedlescombe and traffic travelling towards Hastings was also affected.

Stagecoach SouthEast took to Twitter to say: “Due to an RTC on the A21 there are severe traffic delays on the Ridge, Seddlescombe Road North, Harrow Lane and St Helens Road.

“(The) 100 and 26 services are diverting via Little Ridge Avenue until further notice.”

At 6.24pm on Monday, Rother Police said: “The A21 is open at Claremont following a two-vehicle collision.”

There were also added queues due to the earlier collision between a car and a telegraph pole on the A2100.

The A2100 collision left 66 properties in Battle without electricity supplies.
