One lane has been closed eastbound from the Sussex Pad traffic lights since 8.06am this morning (December 23), causing tailbacks of up to three miles.

A spokesman for Highways England said the lane was expected to remain closed 'through the evening', as workers battled to clear the floodwater.

Traffic has been queuing back into Worthing and congestion has filtered out into surrounding roads as motorists try to find a way around the blockage.
