Motorists on the A27 are facing more diversions as police have closed a section of the road.

Emergency services were at the scene on the A27 Upper Brighton Road in Worthing earlier this morning after reports of a crash.

There is oil spilled on the road and officers have closed it both ways between the A24 Broadwater Street West, the Grove Lodge Roundabout, and Sompting Road, Lyons Farm retail park.

National Highways confirmed the road was closed at around 5.30am. It reopened at around 10am.

Drivers are set to face delays in the area as just over two miles east part of the A27 is closed for the entire weekend.

In Lancing, the A27 eastbound (between A2025 Grinstead Lane, Sompting Roundabout, to A283 Steyning Road, Steyning turn off, Shoreham) was closed last night and will remain closed until the early hours of Monday.

Sussex Police have been contacted for comment.
