“Be warned, absolute carnage already at all roads leading to the traffic lights at The Horse and Groom in Polegate! (7.43am).”

Just one of many messages online caused by the traffic lights that suddenly appeared at the Polegate traffic lights yesterday.

There was also an accident at The Triangle this morning, which has now been cleared.

Another post says: “Total nightmare trying to get anywhere.”

Another says: ” I can’t even get out my road as its that bad.”

Avoid the area!
