At the time an AA spokesman warned drivers to expect severe delays.

He said: “The road is blocked and there is queuing traffic due to a rolled over Recreational Vehicle (RV) on the A27 Westbound from Devils Dyke Road, at the Hove turn off, to the A293 at the West Hove turn off.”

They said the crash happened “in the dip mid way between the Hove and Portslade exits”.
