Police officers had to pick up 'hundreds of nails and screws' off the road in Chichester this morning.

According to Sussex Roads Police officer Tom Van Der Wee, officers had received 'several calls' from members of the public about debris on the Stockbridge roundabout shortly before 9am.

His post on Twitter read: "After someone screwed up and lost their tool box on the A27 [at] Chichester, we’ve attended and picked up the hundreds of nails and screws which were all over the road.

"Thanks to everyone for their patience."

PC Van Der Wee said officers were assisted by a member of the public in clearing the screws and nails from the carriageway.
