The Argus: Rottingdean road closed after car ploughs into telegraph pole Rottingdean road closed after car ploughs into telegraph pole

A road was closed after telegraph poles were brought down following a road crash.

The northbound side of the B2123 Falmer Road in Rottingdean near to the Downs Hotel was closed after a white Renault Clio ploughed into a telegraph pole this morning at 8.20am.

The 29-year-old female driver was uninjured in the collision but the incident caused major traffic delays while BT engineers removed the felled pole from the road.

Was it "poles" or "a pole"? A bit of contradictory, ahem, reporting by the Schmargus there.

Very confusing report. If it's near to the Downs Hotel then it's Woodingdean, if it's Rottingdean then it's nowhere near the Downs Hotel. The two are 2.5 miles apart! Terrible reporting that leaves us feeling we know what happened but actually informs us of very little.
