According to the ambulance service, who sent one crew to the scene, both drivers are out of their vehicles and talking. Paramedics are still at the scene to assess if they need further hospital treatment.

Traffic reports suggest the accident is causing delays on the eastbound lane of the A27 as soon as you enter Worthing. Westbound, the traffic also appears to be backing up past Lyons Farm.

As of 12.50pm, recovery teams were notified and were on their way to the scene to move the vehicles, police said.

Police said that while both lanes of the A27 have been blocked, there is still space for traffic to pass.
