SC Neil Worth said officers were called to an accident at Chichester Road at around 5.30pm on Friday, and advised people to avoid the area on social media.

He added: "Chichester Road just outside Selsey is currently closed whilst we await recovery following a collision.

"The road is blocked in both directions. If you can avoid the area, please do! Thank you for your patience."

A fire engine and ambulances also attended the scene of the collision, which reportedly involved a car and a van.

Providing an update later that evening, SC Neil Worth wrote: "The road into Selsey is now open - we’re sorry for the delay. Thankfully there were only minor injuries."

He also left a message for a driver 'who decided not to stick around' after the collision.

He wrote: "To the driver who decided not to stick around for a chat in Selsey earlier, we know who you are and where you live so perhaps give us a call on 101 sooner rather than later..."
