Posted On 14 Oct 2021 at 2:32 pm

A fuel spillage has caused significant tailbacks on the A27 this afternoon.

Sergeant Richard Hobbs from Sussex Police’s road policing unit tweeted this picture shortly after 1pm today.

He said the spillage happened after debris caused a ruptured fuel tank.

One lane of the westbound carriageway just west of Carden Avenue has been closed.

At about 2.30pm, Sussex Roads Police tweeted a follow up, saying they expected the closure to become protracted, and to avoid the area.
