The white Porsche was travelling Eastbound along the A27 in wet weather conditions, when its driver lost control.

It careered into a wooden fence, before coming to rest in the field.

The driver suffered only minor injuries in the crash, while the sports car ended up caked in mud and with bodywork damage.

Sussex Police issued a warning to drivers to take extra care when driving in bad weather, following several related incidents across the area, including another crash on the A27 at Binstead.

Inspector Stewart Goodwin said: “There have been a number of shunts this morning because of drivers not taking care in the conditions and the two crashes on the A27 could have been far worse.

“In both cases the drivers have been lucky not to have been more seriously injured as they each lost control of their vehicles.

“Please take care in the bad weather. Leaves falling off the trees are making the road surface slippy and the heavy rain has caused flooding on many roads that is causing vehicles to aquaplane on them.

“Be aware of standing water, especially on roads with faster speed limits. Slow down and make sure you get to your destination in one piece.”
