The A259 remains CLOSED between Eastbourne and East Dean with Brighton and Hove service 12 being diverted along the A27.

It was absolute chaos last night as buses were stranded.

12/12X Are currently operating normally between Brighton and Seaford and will then operate via the A26/A27 towards Eastbourne

12a Services are operating between Brighton and Seaford only (Turning at Chyngton).

Here is one typical post from last night:

‘My son evacuated the bus at the top of the hill by the golf course and walked in his pink onesie home (don’t ask!) Luckily, our cousins picked him up. They were on their way home and had turned back in the bad weather to come back to us!’
