A DRIVER has been arrested and a person is seriously injured in hospital after an incident at Burger King.

Police, paramedics and an air ambulance were called to the car park of the fast-food restaurant in Shripney Road, Bognor, at about 12.30pm today.

A Sussex Police spokesman said there had been a collision involving one person and a car. 

A man has been arrested on suspicion of drug driving and causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

The air ambulance was called out but was later stood down, a spokesman said.

The patient was treated at the scene for serious leg injuries, including a suspected fracture, before being driven to St Richard's Hospital in Chichester.

Witnesses reported a heavy police presence in the area this afternoon, including a dog unit.

Emergency services would not say whether the patient was male or female.
