The collision resulted in one of the cars going onto its side.

Two fire engines and a fire rescue truck were sent to the scene, along with police and ambulance services.

Two people, who were trapped, were freed from a red Fiat car, a fire service spokesman said.

A Sussex Police spokesman said one of the drivers was reported to have been ‘slightly hurt’.

A South East Coast Ambulance Service (SECAmb) spokesman said no passengers needed hospital treatment.

“We sent two ambulance crews and a paramedic in a car to the scene”, he said.

“We did not take anybody to hospital but took them to a place of safety or home as they did not require further hospital treatment.”
