THE A27 has reopened after a crash between a van and a car. 

But delays to travel are still expected.

Emergency services were called to rescue a driver who was trapped after a serious crash on the A27. 

East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service cut the person free and handed them to the ambulance crew. 

The A27 Eastbound was closed but has now reopened.

The accident happened on the A26 (Beddingham Roundabout, Beddingham) towards Lacys Hill (Glynde turn off, Glynde).

A27 westbound had 40 minute queues from Selmeston.

Traffic was also queuing on the carriageway westbound due to people slowing down to look.

Bus users are advised to check timetables before travelling as there may be delays. 

A East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said: "We were called at 11.31am to an RTC between a car and a light skid vehicle. 

"One person was trapped. 

"Fire fighters used hydraulic tools to extract the casualty and they were handed into the car of South East Coast Ambulance Service."

A police spokesman said: "Emergency services are at the scene of a collision involving a car and a van on the A27 Beddingham roundabout near Lewes, which happened just before 11.30am on Wednesday (24 April).

"The eastbound lane was closed but has now now been reopened.

"The car driver was taken to hospital with minor injuries."
