Black ice warning from Police

Sussex Police are warning motorists of black ice on the roads. Between midnight and 7.45am today there were more than 40 crashes in Sussex, mainly in rural areas. More than 30 of the accidents mostly involved single cars sliding off the road because their drivers failed to spot ice.

"Rush hour drivers are urged to take it easy on the roads, especially outside towns. The ice cannot readily be spotted, so please slow down and allow extra time for your journey."

– Susses Police spokesperson
