A RECOVERY operation is underway following a crash.

The B2102 near Heathfield is still closed following the crash, reportedly involving a lorry and a car, that happened at around 8pm last night.

According to the AA, heavy machinery is involved on the B2102 both ways between B2192 (Heathfield / Ringmer turn-off) and Possingworth Lane and that services on scene are awaiting specialist recovery.

Images from the scene show a HGV and what looks like machinery on the side of the road.

Sussex Police have been contacted.
