Campaigners fighting a controversial one hundred million pound link road in Sussex say they are prepared to take direct action to stop it being built.
Traders say it's vital to improve business links between Bexhill and Hastings but environmentalists say it's not necessary and it will kill rare wildlife and plants.

Protesters angry at plans to build a £100 million pound link road between Hastings and Bexhill are holding a rally against the plans.
Local traders say the new road is vital to boost the economy.
But campaigners say that the route will endanger a site of special scientific interest and that there is no economic need for the new infrastructure.
Work on the scheme is due to start next January but opponents of the plans are hoping to win a judicial review.
