A teenage girl has died following a collision on the A22 at East Hoathly.
Emergency services were called to the southern end of the East Hoathly by-pass, close to the Thatch Garage, at 9.18pm last night.
The 17-year-old girl from Uckfield was sadly declared dead at the scene. Her relatives have been informed.
The incident caused considerable disruption with the A22 closed from Halland crossroads to the north and the B2124 Laughton road junction to the south.
The road remained closed while recovery and collision investigation work was carried out and reopened around 4am on Sunday.
