A man has died after a car crash on the A27 last night.

Two vehicles crashed on the A27 at Fishbourne at around 6.30pm on Sunday (November 26) and police remain on scene this morning.

The road between Havant and Chichester was shut to allow for forensics investigations. The eastbound stretch will reopen shortly with the westbound carriageway expected to stay shut a while longer.

A spokesman for Sussex Police said: “A section of the road was closed in both directions overnight to allow for recovery and forensics investigations.
